Understanding the genetic and metabolic complexity of diabetes could help in identifying novel drug targets. A new classification of diabetes may pave the way for early intensified treatment and thereby possibly prevent late diabetic complications ascribed to the “metabolic memory”. It may also help the pharma industry to better stratify patients for drug trials and thereby reduce cost for development of new drugs. Dissect the genetic and metabolic complexity of diabetes and provide a refined diabetes classification that can pave the way for precision medicine in diabetes and development of a decision tool (road map) for the diabetic patients.
