Genomic Clustering in Type 2 Diabetes

               The
genomic revolution stands eager to answer the age-old medical question, “nature
versus nurture”.  In a sense, we know
that the symptom of disease we see in patients results from both, only with the
advancing technology to sequence DNA have we begun to uncover the genetics half
of the equation.  For chronic diseases
like type 2 diabetes,

Methylation Cycle Connections to Vitiligo

The number of correlations linking methylation cycle SNPS (single
nucleotide polymorphisms) to various disease is growing.  In this case, researching in Italy found
three gene SNPS in higher frequencies for patients with vitiligo.  This autoimmune attack on one’s skin melanin
cells leaves behind an absence of pigment in coalescing patches.  Stopping its progression across the patient’s
body and reversing the past depigmentation stands as a challenge to
conventional medicine and functional medicine.
