  1. The prevalence of diabetes mellitus and impaired glucose tolerance in a group of urban South African blacks.

    Article - En anglais

    The prevalence of diabetes mellitus and impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) was determined in 479 urbanised South African blacks (141 men and 338 women) of Zulu descent selected by cluster sampling in a suburb of Durban.

    All subjects underwent a modified glucose tolerance test whereby fasting and 2-hour post-glucose (75 g) plasma glucose levels were measured.

    On the basis of the revised World Health Organisation criteria, the overall prevalence of diabetes was 4,2% and of IGT 6,9%; the age- and sex-adjusted prevalences were 5,3% and 7,7% respectively.
