Scania Diabetes Registry
The Scania Diabetes Registry (SDR) was initiated in Southern Sweden in 1996 with the aim to:
- Create a databank and bio-bank of all available diabetic patients in Scania to allow more precise classification of diabetic subgroups
- Identify genetic variants predisposing to micro and macrovascular complications
- Study how the identified biomarkers and genetic markers can predict development and progression of complications
- Identify means to prevent the development of these complications.
