Sažetak
Diabetes mellitus type 2 is a disease typical of our time. It is a group of metabolic diseases which result in elevated blood sugar resulting from either inadequate insulin production or improper response of cells to the insulin. Based on that two subtypes of diabetes mellitus type 2 have been recognised – Insulin resistance and Impaired insulin secretion. Although diabetes mellitus type 2 is believed to be disease of the modern age due to inadequate diet rich in sugars and fats and lack of physical activity part of the cause also lies in the genetic blueprint of the affected individuals. Diabetes mellitus type 2 is a polygenic disease and up until now almost 100 genes believed to be involved have been found. Great contributing factor is environment, including everyday lifestyle. For that purpose in this work, gene networks believed to be linked to diabetes mellitus were generated and later assessed for optimal diet recommendations.
