Diabetes often runs in families; you may have relatives with diabetes yourself or know somebody with diabetes. However, the genes involved are still poorly understood. We hope that by studying the genetic code in people with diabetes we will understand the cause of diabetes and its complications better. Improved knowledge should help us in the treatment and prevention of diabetes. We do hope that in the long term all patients with diabetes will benefit from the knowledge obtained.
