Gene variant raises risk of heart disease among type 2 diabetics
Gene variant raises risk of heart disease among type 2 diabetics (August 27, 2013 - Insidermedicine) From Boston - A new report published in JAMA identifies a genetic variant that may raise risk of heart disease in type 2 diabetics. Researchers reviewed data from several long term studies. In particular, they examined data on over 4,000 diabetic patients--1,500 who had heart disease and 2,600 who did not. After testing over 2.5 million genetic variants, researchers found a variant that consistently raised risk of heart disease in diabetes patients by 36%.
