The thrifty phenotype hypothesis says that reduced fetal growth is strongly associated with a number of chronic conditions later in life.

Twin studies offer little support to genetic hypotheses because monozygotic twins share more than genes in utero and suffer from ascertainment bias.

Focus-group interviews were held with 35 men with diabetes and aged between 39 and 78 years. The common pathways regulate important bodily functions including cell-to-cell communication and structural support for tissue, according to the study.
