Multi-polygenic risk score may predict type 2 diabetes complications

Combining 10 weighted polygenic risk scores of variants related to cardiovascular and renal complications in a joint model with traditional risk factors could optimize micro- and macrovascular risk prediction and treatment response in type 2 diabetes, say researchers.
