Every one of us is born with a set of instructions that tells the cell in our body how to function. In scientific terms, this set of instructions is known as our genetic makeup or the genes that we inherit from our parents. From our dietary preferences and metabolic rate to our risk of developing chronic medical conditions, our genes have a significant influence on our overall health and wellbeing. Diabetes is one of those several diseases that tend to run in families.
