Description

Diabetes and prediabetes are major risk factors for heart disease and stroke. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that about 70% of diabetics will eventually die of heart disease and about 15% from stroke. The number of Americans with diabetes and prediabetes is increasing; the American Heart Association recently identified that 38% of adult Americans in 2010 are prediabetic.

Product Details
A method of predicting the risk of developing diabetes (fasting serum glucose > 125 mg/dL) in subjects with prediabetes (fasting serum glucose 100 – 125 mg/dL). This method uses information about the person’s height, weight, parental history of diabetes, and use of cholesterol lowering medications (statins and niacin) along with the following measurements: fasting glucose, glycated serum protein, adiponectin, and triglycerides. This method provides a highly accurate assessment of the 10 year diabetes risk (over 92% accurate).
