Determinants of Gestational Diabetes Pedigree Function for Pima Indian Females.

Diabetes pedigree function estimates diabetes likelihood depending on the subject’s age and his/her diabetic family history, which are considered as the primary risk factors of the diabetes disease. Family clinical history reveals important genomic information, which characterizes the joint interactions between behavioral, environmental, and genetic factors.

Practically, it is found in the society that a type 2 diabetic patient has some of her/his family members such as at least a sibling, or a parent, may have type 2 diabetes  But there is no standard proof that T2D can be recognized as an inherited disease.

Recently, an article shows the impact of the clinical history of diseases on cardiovascular risk factors. The risk factors identification and early detection of diabetes are the principal steps of reducing diabetes complications. And global economic burden that are beneficial for both the public health perspectives and clinical practice.10 The primary risk factors of diabetes are unhealthy diet, family history, aging, ethnic groups, sedentary lifestyle, obesity and previous history of gestational diabetes mellitus.

Some earlier articles have also pointed that body mass index, sex, metabolic status, and pregnancy are associated with diabetes.
Most of the previous articles have focused on diabetes risk factors based on the logistic regression analysis, where the
response is a dichotomous discrete variable, which loses a lot of information. On the other hand, very few articles have focused on
the validity of DPF, which includes only two factors such as age and the history of diabetes status
