  1. Decline in incidence of epidemic glucose intolerance in Nauruans : implications for the thrifty genotype.

    Article - En anglais

    Trends in the prevalence and incidence of non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus and impaired glucose tolerance were studied in Micronesian Nauruans aged 20 years and above, by linking glucose tolerance data collected during population surveys performed in 1975/1976, 1982, and 1987.

    Based on World Health Organization criteria, the age-standardized prevalence of non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus has remained relatively constant (24.0% in 1987), but the prevalence of impaired glucose tolerance has decreased significantly from 21.1% in 1975/1976 to 8.7% in 1987.

    Between the periods 1975/1976-1982 and 1982-1987, the incidence of progression from normal glucose tolerance to either impaired glucose tolerance or non-insulin-dependent diabetes has decreased dramatically, while progression from impaired glucose tolerance to non-insulin-dependent diabetes has increased.
