Study Description

The NIDDM-Atherosclerosis Study, funded by NHLBI, was designed as a family study to examine the genetic basis of subclinical atherosclerosis and diabetes in Hispanic families. Family members of probands with T2D were recruited in the Los Angeles area. The baseline examination of the cohort included the euglycemic hyperinsulinemic clamp test from which the two key phenotypes were obtained: insulin sensitivity (M) and metabolic clearance rate of insulin (MCRI). Genome-wide genotyping was obtained under separate funding by NIDDK as a part of the GUARDIAN (Genetics Underlying Diabetes in Hispanics) Consortium.
