Diabetic Nephropathy

It is easier to find genes in DN for T1D than T2D?

It has been difficult to identify SNPs with even modest effects in studies of type 2 diabetic nephropathy. One possible explanation is that patients with kidney disease who have type 2 diabetes may not have a single disease. Indeed the old biopsy data suggest that there is a diversity of diseases in this population. Should gene finding efforts focus exclusively on type 1 diabetic nephropathy for the short term?
