That is 1 in 3. We only know there are numerous benefits to genetic testing. Those benefits are now extending to diabetes and more diabetes genetic testing is being done daily.
One of the benefits of diabetes genetic testing is to identify your personal risk and your family’s risk for developing diabetes. Your blood pressure, cholesterol, and weight are considered part of your risk factor for developing diabetes. By analyzing your DNA you can determine the type of diabetes you have and if you have any chance of developing diabetes in the future. This type of testing can help you plan treatment options.
