Diabetes Exposure in Womb Tied to Later-Life T2 Diabetes

How much of this is socioeconomic vs genetic vs physiologic?

“Diabetes during pregnancy may put offspring at a higher risk for incident type 2 diabetes later in life, an analysis of indigenous and non-indigenous Canadians found.

Overall, those who had been exposed to type 2 diabetes and gestational diabetes in utero had a higher risk for developing type 2 diabetes before the age of 30 compared with those who had no exposure to diabetes (3.19 versus 0.80 versus 0.26 cases per 1,000 person-years, respectively, P<0.001), according to Brandy Wicklow, MD, MSc, of the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, and colleagues.”
