The Indian thin-fat phenotype – discoveries from a long career with diabetes research in India and abroad

By Chittaranjan Yajnik
MD and Professor, Director of the Diabetes Unit at the King Edward Memorial Hospital and Research Centre in Pune, India

Professor Chittaranjan Yajnik has trained in Pune, India and Oxford, UK. His research focuses on the high susceptibility of Indians to diabetes and related disorders, and is known for his description of the 'thin-fat Indian'.

He has set up three birth cohorts in Pune, which have contributed poineering ideas in the field of DOHaD (Development Origins of Health and Disease). He has collected substantial phenotypic data in a life course model and created a unique biobank of samples from many studies.

He was appointed as Visting Professor at the Danish Diabetes Academy in 2017 and collaborates with Danish experts on collaborative ideas with the focus to investigate diabetes susceptibility and exploiting the substantial differences between Indians and the Scandinavians.

About the lecture

He will describe the Pune findings in a DOHaD perspective and discuss the Indian thin-fat phenotype and the possible role of vitamin B12 deficiency and deranged 1-C metabolism in its aetiology.
