Risk Factors For Type Diabetes

The identification of risk factors is essential for the successful implementation of primary prevention programs. Risk factors for type 2 diabetes can be classified as modifiable and nonmodifiable (Table 4). Subjects who subsequently develop diabetes have multiple adverse changes in risk factor levels. A good example is our study of 892 elderly Finnish subjects followed for 3.5 years (38). As shown in Figure 3 the highest risk of developing diabetes was associated with IGT and hyperinsulinemia. Furthermore, hypertriglyceridemia, central obesity, low high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, high body mass index, hypertension, and a family history of diabetes were risk factors for diabetes.
