  Purpose

This study will examine the impact diabetes genetic counseling on patient motivation and disease prevention behaviors among subjects with pre-diabetes. Intervention subjects will be provided with their individual diabetes genotype risk score derived from aggregating the combined results of 37 diabetes risk-associated genetic loci. Controls will not be tested. All subjects will be enrolled in a 12-week diabetes prevention program.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • program attendance [ Time Frame: 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 90
Study Start Date: December 2009
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2012
Estimated Primary Completion Date: August 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Diabetes Genetic Counseling
Subjects will have been genotyped and will received genetic counseling based on their results
Behavioral: Diabetes Genetic Counseling
Subjects will be genotyped based on a 37-allele aggregate score and counseled regarding the implications of the results prior to enrollment in a 12-week diabetes prevention program
Placebo Comparator: No Genotyping or Counseling
Patients will not be genotyped and will therefore not receive genetic counseling
Behavioral: No genetic counseling
These subjects will not be genotyped or counseled prior to enrollment in a 12-week diabetes prevention program

Detailed Description:

This study will examine the impact diabetes genetic counseling on patient motivation and disease prevention behaviors among subjects with pre-diabetes. We will randomize subjects with pre-diabetes to genetic testing vs. no genetic testing in order to obtain an unconfounded test of the hypothesis that genetic testing will change patient behavior. Intervention subjects will be provided with their individual diabetes genotype risk score derived from aggregating the combined results of 37 diabetes risk-associated genetic loci. Because patients can receive either "Higher risk" or "Lower risk" genetic test results, we will separately examine the impact of "Higher risk" and "Lower risk" test results compared to untested controls. All subjects will be enrolled in a 12-week diabetes prevention program.
