Abstract

South Asia harbors one of the highest levels genetic diversity in Eurasia, which could be interpreted as a result of its long-term large effective population size and of admixture during its complex demographic history. In contrast to Pakistani populations, populations of Indian origin ...read more

Type 2 Diabetes

This feed focuses on Type 2 Diabetes, a disease where the body doesn’t produce or respond to insulin anymore, leading to abnormal glucose levels in the blood.

Metabolic Syndrome

Metabolic syndrome is characterized by obesity, insulin resistance, dyslipidemia and hypertension. It significantly increases the risk for cardiovascular and disease and type 2 diabetes. Increasing prevalence has been associated with the increasing rates of obesity worldwide. Here is the latest research on the metabolic syndrome.

Genetic Epidemiology Of Complex Diseases

Genetic epidemiology examines the role of genetic factors in determining health and disease in populations and the interaction between these genetic factors with environmental factors. Here is the latest research on the genetic epidemiology of complex multifactorial diseases like cancer.

Metabolic Syndrome & T2DM

Metabolic syndrome is a complex disorder characterized by a cluster of metabolic abnormalities including hypertension, obesity, type 2 diabetes, and dyslipidemia. Here is the latest research on metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes mellitus.
