Researchers have found that the genetic testing of babies diagnosed with diabetes can be beneficial for treatment. Genetic testing could provide doctors with important information on how to best treat diabetes. It can also provide insight into other genetic issues that the baby might be battling. If the genetic diagnosis is performed early, treatments may be able to start right away. Parents will also receive valuable information about potential medical problems that the child may be likely to experience in the future. As a result, doctors will be able to anticipate potential problems for their patients and use appropriate care to reduce the impact.

These findings were published in the Lancet magazine on August 22nd, 2015.
