  1. Ethnic differences in risk factors associated with the prevalence of non-insulin-dependent diabetse mellitus : the San Luis Valley diabetes study.

    Article - En anglais

    Non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus is 2-5 times more common in Hispanics than in non-Hispanic whites in the United States.

    The authors conducted this case-control study in two Colorado counties from 1984 to 1986 to determine whether known risk factors for non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus explained the excess incidence in Hispanics.

    There were 279 subjects with prevalent diabetes and 488 subjects with normal glucose tolerance who were eligible for this analysis.

    After adjustment for age and sex, results showed that Hispanics were 3.5 times more likely than non-Hispanic whites to have non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (95% confidence interval 2.4-4.9).
