Distribution and correlates of total impaired fasting glucose in Oman
AbstractTo determine the distribution and correlates of total impaired fasting glucose in Oman, we conducted a cross-sectional survey of 1968 households with 7011 eligible residents in 2000. During face-to-face interviews, demographic data, blood pressure, fasting blood glucose, serum cholesterol, weight, height and waist and hip measurements were obtained. Of 5788 subjects tested for total impaired fasting glucose [response rate: 83%], crude prevalence was 17.3% and age-adjusted prevalence was 20.3%. Associated factors in bivariate analysis were older age, male gender, lower education, hypercholesterolaemia, being married, obesity, abnormal waist to hip ratio and hypertension. Total impaired fasting glucose is a significant public health problem in Oman. Increasing the awareness of health care providers and community through health education is crucial

Frequency of impaired glucose tolerance and diabetes mellitus in subjects with fasting blood glucose below 6.1 mmol/L [110 mg/dL] Khan, S.H.; Ijaz, A.; Bokhari, S.A. Raza; Hanif, M.S.; Azam, N. (2013)The diagnosis of diabetes mellitus by the available criteria is controversial and relies heavily on fasting glucose results. This cross-sectional study in 2010-2011 aimed to measure the frequency of impaired glucose tolerance and diabetes mellitus in 127 subjects having fasting blood glucose < 7.0 mmol/L and to measure the agreement between different standard diagnostic criteria. Subjects presenting to a laboratory for analysis of fasting blood glucose for excluding diabetes meilitus underwent a 2-hour 75 g oral glucose challenge. A total of 40.6% ...
