GUARDIAN: The Insulin Resistance Atherosclerosis Family Study (IRASFS)
|Study ID||Alternative Stable ID||Type|
TThe IRAS Family Study was a family study designed to examine the genetic and epidemiologic basis of glucose homeostasis traits and abdominal adiposity. Briefly, self-reported Mexican pedigrees were recruited in San Antonio, TX and San Luis Valley, CO. Probands with large families were recruited from the initial non-family-based IRAS Study, which was modestly enriched for impaired glucose tolerance and T2D. GUARDIAN includes 1,024 individuals in 88 pedigrees from the IRAS Family Study. Insulin sensitivity was obtained by FSIGT.
