Scientists in Sweden have discovered similarities and differences in the genetics of type 2 diabetes between India and Europe. The research could help improve treatment of the disease in India, which is home to almost 77 million adults with diabetes. The study found that certain genetic variations were more common in Indian individuals with type 2 diabetes compared to Europeans, while other variations were shared among both populations. Researchers hope that by understanding these differences, they can improve treatment for the disease in India, where diabetes is a major public health issue.
