rs7901695

Parent Gene: TCF7L2

Importance: 3
Less common allele: None = None
More common allele: T = None
My Genotype: Log In
Risk Allele: C

Disease/Trait: Type Ii Diabetes Mellitus

rs7901695 is associated with Type Ii Diabetes Mellitus (R) . It is reported to increased association with Type 2 diabetes (T2D). No specific risk allele was identified in the study.

Disease/Trait: Type Ii Diabetes Mellitus

The C allele of rs7901695 is reported to be associated with Type Ii Diabetes Mellitus (R) . Your genotype was not identified for this SNP so we are unable to comment on your association with Type 2 diabetes (DGI+FUSION+WTCCC).
