This systematic review concludes that, rather than screening for high risk of type 2 diabetes, it would be better to invest in prevention measures that would help the whole population.

HbA1c as a screening tool for detection of Type 2 diabetes: a systematic review
TLDR
To assess the validity of glycated haemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) as a screening tool for early detection of Type 2 diabetes, a large number of patients with type 2 diabetes are enrolled for screening.

In developing these recommendations, the Canadian Task Force on Preventive Health Care drew heavily on a recent systematic review prepared for the US Preventive Services Task Force of the evidence

Aims  Education is an essential part of the management of patients with Type 2 diabetes, but the long‐term effects are unclear and not well investigated in primary care.
Screening for type 2 diabetes: literature review and economic modelling.
TLDR
The modelling exercise concluded that screening for diabetes appears to be cost-effective for the 40-70-year age band, more so for the older age bands, but the incremental cost-effectiveness ratio for screening versus no screening is only 10,216 pounds per quality-adjusted life-year.
Screening Adults for Type 2 Diabetes: A Review of the Evidence for the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force
TLDR
This review summarizes evidence that has become available since the previous report to inform an update of the 2003 USPSTF recommendations on screening for type 2 diabetes and prediabetes and searched MEDLINE and the Cochrane Library for relevant English-language systematic reviews and studies.
Screening for type 2 diabetes.
TLDR
It will be important to use comprehensive cardiovascular disease modules that assess the conjoint influence of glucose and cardiovascular risk factor reduction, information on QOL, and refined economic evaluations using common outcome measures within economic studies to allow selection of the optimal approach within the financial and resource limitations of the health care system.
Albuminuria and Risk of Cardiovascular Events , Death , and Heart Failure in Diabetic and Nondiabetic Individuals
TLDR
The risk of pancreatic cancer to obesity, increased height, and physical activity is examined to suggest that impaired glucose tolerance, insulin resistance, and hyperinsulinemia play a role in the etiology of pancreatIC cancer.
Screening Adults for Type 2 Diabetes: A Review of the Evidence for the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force
TLDR
A systematic review of the evidence concerning screening adults for diabetes found insufficient evidence to recommend for or against screening for diabetes, and developed eligibility criteria for admissible evidence for each key question.
