Diabetes/Obesity Panel - The leading Health & Diagnostic provider for DNA, Genetic Tests & Cancer Screening in Dubai, UAE

Diabetes/Obesity Panel

Diabetes is a group of not well-understood disorders characterized by abnormal glucose levels. As a complex disease, diabetes is the result of the interplay between the individual’s genetic make-up and the environment and there are multiple genes that are known to be associated with this condition; thus, a multigene panel represents a cost-effective option to identify the genetic cause of diabetes.

Application(s)

• The clinical utility of genetic testing for diabetes is based on its capacity to confirm the diagnosis and predict the general clinical course of the condition.
• While a deregulated level of glucose is the common trait for all cases of diabetes, some genetic defects will result in additional manifestations such as macrovascular complications or metabolic syndrome. Identifying the subset of patients who
are at higher risk for these or other complications, enables preventive interventions to reduce the negative impact in the patient’s lives.
• Besides improving the management of the individual, discovering of the genetic cause of diabetes in a family allows the identification of family members at risk even before the condition manifests.
• Given the genetic heterogeneity, a multigene panel provides a cost-effective (time and money) alternative that provides an answer in a shorter time and at a lower price.
