Sex-specific prevalence, inequality and associated predictors of hypertension, diabetes, and comorbidity among Bangladeshi adults: results from a nationwide cross-sectional demographic and health survey
A rising prevalence of hypertension, diabetes and comorbidity with inequality in service utilisation is revealed among the adult population of Bangladesh and a joint effort involving public, private and non-governmental organisations is necessary to reduce the disease burden.


Prevalence of Diabetes and Hypertension in a Rural Population of Bangladesh
Increased age was shown to be an important risk factor for all these disorders, whereas BMI-associated risk was significant with NIDDM and hypertension but not with IGT; whereas increased BMI showed inconsistent association with them.
Prevalence and risk factors for diabetic retinopathy in the multiethnic population of Mauritius.
The high prevalence of diabetic retinopathy observed in all major ethnic groups in Mauritius portends a serious public health problem, given the relative recency of the NIDDM epidemic in that country and the limited resources for laser photocoagulation.
Prevalence of diabetic retinopathy in urban India: the Chennai Urban Rural Epidemiology Study (CURES) eye study, I.
This study shows that the prevalence of diabetic retinopathy is lower in urban South Indians than in other ethnic groups; however, due to the large number of diabetic subjects, DR is likely to pose a public health burden in India; hence, routine retinal examination is mandatory to detect DR in the early stages.
Diabetes and impaired fasting glycemia in a rural population of Bangladesh.
The prevalence of diabetes and IFG in the rural population of Bangladesh was found to be on the increase compared with the previous reports of Bangladesh and other Asian studies, and wealthy class, family history of diabetes, reduced physical exercise, and increased age, BMI, and WHR were the important predictors of diabetes.
High Prevalence of NIDDM and IGT in an Elderly South Indian Population With Low Rates of Obesity
Although there was a twofold higher prevalence of diabetes in the urban area, the occurrence of IGT was similar in urban and rural populations, highlighting the high prevalence of glucose intolerance in elderly south Indians having low mean BMI.
Retinopathy in a Chinese population with type 2 diabetes: factors affecting the presence of this complication at diagnosis of diabetes.
Population based assessment of diabetic retinopathy in an urban population in southern India
Visual impairment due to diabetic retinopathy was relatively uncommon in this urban Indian population in 1996–7, however, this could change in the near future with an increase in duration of diabetes because of the anticipated aging of India’s population and the recent suggestion of increase in diabetes prevalence in urban India.
Prevalence of Glucose Intolerance in Asian Indians: Urban-rural difference and significance of upper body adiposity
The study showed a high prevalence of NIDDM in the urban southern Indian population and the prevalence in the same ethnic group in rural areas was significantly lower, while the prevalence of IGT was similar in both populations.
