Abstract

Objective: This study was designed to set up in Belgium a national screening program in order to evaluate the prevalence of undiagnosed impaired glucose tolerance and type 2 diabetes in a general population with at least onerisk factor. Material and Methods: 10.201 individuals were screened by 1.466 general practioners between 1995 and 1998 (age: 57+/-16 years; BMI: 28 +/- 5 kg/m(2);mean +/- 1SD). A three step diagnosis protocol was followed (blood glucoseat random; fasting plasma glucose and, if needed, a 75 g oral glucose tolerance test). WHO criteria were used for diagnosis. Results: Impaired glucose tolerance was found in 3% of individuals, while 11% had diabetes. Patients with abnormal glucose metabolism were older (P<0.001) and had an higher BMI (P<0.001) than non-diabetic subjects, The prevalence of undiagnosed diabetes was slightly higher (14 vs. 11%) when using afasting plasma glucose threshold of 126 mg/dl (instead of 140 mg/dl) as recommended by the ADA experts. Conclusion: Undiagnosed abnormal glucose metabolism, in particular diabetes, is particularly frequent in a Belgian at risk population.
