Maternal role in type 2 diabetes mellitus : indirect evidence for a mitochondrial inheritance.
The role of mitochondrial inheritance in type 2 diabetes mellitus has received much attention recently.
In this study, three existing datasets in Taiwan are analysed to examine this theory.
Two of the datasets were community surveys and one a hospital case series.
Subjects who had information regarding their paternal or maternal diabetic status were selected for the present study.
In the first dataset, 745 subjects had information about paternal diabetic status and 765 had information about maternal diabetic status.
In the second dataset, 255 and 267 subjects had the paternal and maternal information, respectively.
In the third, a total of 3625 subjects had information about both their paternal and maternal diabetic status.
