The overall aim of this study was to evaluate, from a global and ecological perspective, the relationships between availability of high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) and prevalence of type 2 diabetes. Using published resources, country-level estimates (n =43 countries) were obtained for: total sugar, HFCS and total calorie availability, obesity, two separate prevalence estimates for diabetes, prevalence estimate for impaired glucose tolerance and fasting plasma glucose. Pearson's correlations and… CONTINUE READING

Diabetes prevalence was 20% higher in countries with higher availability of HFCS compared to countries with low availability , and these differences were retained or strengthened after adjusting for country - level estimates of body mass index ( BMI ) , population and gross domestic product ( adjusted diabetes prevalence=8.0 vs. 6.7% , p=0.03 ; fasting plasma glucose=5.34 vs. 5.22 mmol / L , p=0.03 ) despite similarities in obesity and total sugar and calorie availability .
