Five shortcut methods of population screening for glucose intolerance (impaired glucose tolerance and non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus) were assessed for effectiveness: 1) glycosylated hemoglobin concentration (HbA1), 2) fasting plasma glucose level, 3) combinations of fasting plasma glucose and HbA1, 4) plasma glucose one hour post oral glucose load, and 5) plasma glucose two hour post oral glucose load. In a sample of the Israeli Jewish population aged 40-70 years, 2040 participants in… CONTINUE READING
