Youth-onset is associated with obesity, higher incidence of complications, aggressive progression of the disease, and reduced response to treatment. The prevalence among youth in all ethnicities is increasing, but in non-Hispanic black youth is growing much faster. Genomic-wide association studies (GWAS) have recognized over 300 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) correlating to type 2 diabetes. Understanding risk factors and the rate progression of disease-associated to them would be essential in managing type 2 diabetes....
