International Textbook of Diabetes Mellitus, 4th Ed., Excerpt #140: The Genetics of Type 2 Diabetes Part 2

Heritability of T2DM: It has long been clear that T2DM clusters in families and it is well established that the risk of developing T2DM depends on both genetic and environmental factors. However, the exact proportion of the two, that is, the heritability, is difficult to determine and heritability estimates therefore vary in the range of 25–80% between studies. Twin-studies have estimated the genetic component by comparing disease concordance in dizygotic twins with concordance in monozygotic twins. In these studies probandwise concordance rates (number of affected twins having a diabetic co-twin) for monozygotic twins vary between 34 and 100%.
