Diabetes gene found

The discovery of the gene PTPN1 could lead to earlier treatment and new therapies, which already are being tested.

Heres a tip folks, dont hold your breath. Diabetes is a multifactorial disease, ie multiple factors excluding genetics contribute to its pathogenesis. Losing weight is the best course of action, just dont do it through Atkins, it'll kill your kidneys.

Interesting blog you have here, I landed here on accident. I was searching for something else and came across your site. I found it pretty interesting and entertaining. I got you book marked.

I will pop back in from time to time to see what you have new here.

My site is a bit different than yours, but just as entertaining and educational, I run a diabetes related site pertaining to diabetes related articles.
