Prevalence of type 2 diabetes and other cardiovascular risk factors in a semirural area in Yemen
AbstractThe study determined the prevalence of type 2 diabetes, abnormal glucose tolerance and other cardiovascular risk factors in a sample of 250 adults aged >/= 35 years in a semirural area near Sana'a, the capital of Yemen. The overall crude prevalence of diabetes was 10.4% [95% CI: 6.6%-14.2%] and the age-standardized rate was 6.3% [95% CI: 5.4%-7.2%]. The age-standardized rate of having either impaired fasting glucose or impaired glucose tolerance was 9.0% [95% CI: 6.0%-12.0%] and the age-standardized prevalence of hypertension was 14.2% [95% CI: 13.0%-16.0%]. Age and waist circumference were independently related to total glucose intolerance. The observed high frequency of central obesity suggests a dietary origin for these adverse health conditions
