A new test from deCODE
genetics, deCODE T2™, will tell whether you carry a genetic
marker known to substantially increase the risk for type 2 diabetes.
People who test positive for the T2™ marker are twice as likely
to develop diabetes than people who do not have the marker. Studies
show that you can help prevent diabetes through diet, exercise and/or
medication. Studies have also shown that some drugs work less well
in people who have the this marker while other drugs are unaffected.
The test can help your physician determine the best medication for
you. Consult your doctor! DNA
Direct offers the test for $300.
