This is one of the SNPs that 23andMe uses for Type 1 diabetes. According to 23andMe, this SNP changes your risk of Type 1 Diabetes. That is an autoimmune disease where your immune system attacks your own body's insulin producing cells in the pancreas, preventing your blood sugar from being able to enter cells that need energy. This has been verified for white people. 23andMe originally wanted to use rs9272346 instead, but it was deemed unreliable.
