I want to know has there been genetic research for the mechanisms of the disease process diabetes? Where can someone go to get genetic studies for this disesase? How close are we to finding a cure for both diabetes 1& 2?

The Diabetes Trial net collaboration screens family members of people with Type 1 diabetes for autoantibodies. Those who are positive do have genetic testing done and there are intervention studies to try to prevent Type 1 and reverse the loss of insulin production in newly diagnosed Type 1 diabetes.

There are “cures” for type 2 diabetes. In early stages it involves physical activity and diet with moderate weight loss. Several trials have shown reductions in the progression to diabetes or regression from diabetes. Similarly, an important % of patients with diabetes and severe obesity resolve or markedly reduce their needs for diabetes medicines after bariatric surgery. Type 2 diabetes is not to our knowledge a single gene disease, so silver bullet cures are unlikely.
