Metabolic phenotyping: is it so important?

Prybyla O

Type 2 diabetes is one of the most pressing problems not only for endocrinologists and their patients, but also for the whole society. The relationship between the stage of obesity, the risk of cardiovascular diseases and mortality from them has been established. Throughout our life we realize natural instincts - food, reproduction, self-preservation. All factors that influence them can cause pathological changes in carbohydrate and lipid metabolism. Those features are mainly determined by phenotypic characters. The negative consequences of the established phenotype are manifested in elderly and old age. This is the time when the embodiment of the basic natural instincts is completed, and the adaptive - compensatory processes are inhibited.
