According to recent reports in the diabetic news, a new genetic fingerprint could help in predicting the development of type 1 diabetes at an earlier stage than is currently possible.
A recent study at the Children’s Hospital in Wisconsin indicates that type 1 diabetics experience an early-stage inflammation that leaves a unique and identifiable genomic fingerprint, able to be detected using a specific type of drug test.
The scientists believe that the fingerprint could be detected at a very early stage, several years before diabetics can currently be identified. Scientists believe that this genome fingerprint could aid in the identification of children who are at risk of type 1 diabetes .
