Objective There is some evidence to suggest that individuals with depression are at an almost twofold increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes mellitus, but results are far from conclusive. Therefore, to determine if depressive symptoms increased the risk of type 2 diabetes, we conducted longitudinal analyses using data from the NHANES I Epidemiologic Follow-up Survey (NHEFS). Research design and methods Participants included individuals who were white or African-American, did not report pre...

OBJECTIVE —To determine the feasibility of using either fasting plasma glucose or HbA 1c to identify individuals in the U.S. population who meet the Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) criteria for intervention, defined as BMI ≥24 kg/m 2 , fasting plasma glucose level 96–125 mg/dl, and 2-h glucose level 140–199 mg/dl in an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT). RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS —Analysis of a representative sample of U.S. adults aged 40–74 years with no medical history of diabetes for whom...

Background Fasting serum insulin and fasting serum C-peptide are risk factors for developing type 2 diabetes. Because of the higher incidence of type 2 diabetes in African Americans and Hispanic Americans, it is likely that these groups may differ from non-Hispanic whites in their levels of insulin and C-peptide. Methods We analyzed data from a nationally representative sample of adults in the US population for whom sociodemographic, clinical, and laboratory information were obtained. The data w...
A previous study showed that 93% of adults with diabetes in the U.S. population have some form of health insurance, and 52% have multiple sources of insurance (1). An important but unanswered question is whether the source and nature of health insurance influences access to care, quality of care, and health status and outcomes for patients with diabetes. To investigate this issue, we analyzed data from the third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, which included a representative na...
OBJECTIVE — The aim of the study was to investigate the relationship between blood glucose level, measured as HbA 1c, and frequency of self-monitoring in patients with type 2 diabetes. Daily self-monitoring is believed to be important for patients treated with insulin or oral agents to detect asymptomatic hypoglycemia and to guide patient and provider behavior toward reaching blood glucose goals. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS — A national sample of patients with type 2 diabetes was studied in the ...
OBJECTIVE —To evaluate health care access and utilization and health status and outcomes for type 2 diabetic patients according to race and ethnicity and to determine whether health status is influenced by health care access and utilization. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS —National samples of Caucasians, African-Americans, and Mexican-Americans were studied in the third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. Information on medical history and treatment of diabetes, health care access and...

ContextCurrent diagnostic criteria for diabetes are based on plasma glucose levels in blood samples obtained in the morning after an overnight fast, with a value of 7.0 mmol/L (126 mg/dL) or more indicating diabetes. However, many patients are seen by their physicians in the afternoon. Because plasma glucose levels are higher in the morning, it is unclear whether these diagnostic criteria can be applied to patients who are tested for diabetes in the afternoon.ObjectivesTo document diurnal variat...

Abstract Objective: To determine whether hormone replacement therapy (HRT) alters glucose metabolism. Methods: Cross-sectional data from the third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (1988–1994) included levels of hemoglobin A 1c in women with diagnosed diabetes and levels of hemoglobin A 1c , fasting and 2-hour glucose, and fasting insulin and C-peptide in women without diagnosed diabetes. We compared mean values for these measures among never, current, and past users of HRT with a...
