Background: Diabetes is one of the most common chronic diseases worldwide. The number of diabetic patients in Iran is estimated 1.5 million. This survey has been conducted to evaluate diabetes and impaired fasting glucose status among 25-64 aged inhabitants of 17th zone of Tehran, selected as Population Lab region.
Methods: This study is a part of the Cardiovascular Risk Factors Survey in the Population Lab region. This survey has been designed and conducted based on MONICA/WHO project. A total of 1573 people have been recruited and assessed on age, weight, height, waist and hip circumferences. Body mass index (BMI), waist circumference (WC) and waist-to-hip ratio (WHR) were determined for comparing between groups. The known diabetic cases were found as history of taking antihyperglycemic agents or report of their family physician and new cases were diagnosed as FPG≥126mg/dl according to the ADA 2004criteria.IFG was determined by 100≤FPG≤126.Adjusted prevalences are calculated according to the 1375 census data.
Results: type 2 diabetes prevalence was 10.9% and the prevalence of IFG was 5% in this population. The age adjusted prevalences were 9.3% and 4.5% respectively. prevalences were higher in women than men in all age groups. people with diabetes had higher body mass index, waist, waist to hip ratio, mean systolic and diastolic blood pressure(p<0.05).9/8% of diabetic patients were unaware of their disease.
Conclusion: These results revealed that the prevalence of diabetes among women was higher than men. This finding may be in part because of little physical activity .Proper and effective planning to achieve the applied strategies for improving the social knowledge and awareness and also improving the life style of the people is highly necessiated.
