Do genomic, epigenetic, and metabolomic characteristics explain the excess risk of type 2 diabetes (T2D) in Asian-Americans?

California data shows T2D prevalence is higher among Pacific Islanders, Filipinos and South Asians, compared to Latinos, African-Americans, and Native Americans; further, Chinese, Japanese, and Koreans in California have a 50% higher risk of T2D compared to Whites. High throughput technologies, including metabolomics and genomics could provide valuable insight regarding the etiology of T2D disease mechanisms, and novel predictive biomarkers
