To explore the low birth weight risk gene variants in Chinese Han population, in 2009, we analyzed the association between type 2 diabetes risk gene variants in or near TCF7L2 , SLC30A8, KCNQ1, and PANK4 in Chinese Han individuals born in Peking Union Medical College Hospital (PUMCH), then found that birth weight was positively associated with KCNQ1 rs2074196 ([sz] = −40 g, [95% confidence interval [ CI ]: −71, −0.1], P = 0.04), and did not observe association between birth weight and TCF7L2 , SLC30A8, and PANK4 .
