Assessment of Response Rates and Yields for Two Tools for Early Detection of Non-diabetic Hyperglycaemia and Diabetes

2014-08-27 03:20:22 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this study is to establish the most effective method of increasing attendance to screening of type 2 Diabetes within a primary care setting within the backdrop of the NHS Health Check programme.


The University Hospitals of Leicester and The University of Leicester have developed a self-assessment risk score and a practice data risk score that can be used in a variety of setting to detect undiagnosed diabetes and impaired glucose regulation. This is done to establish a simple and effective 1st stage screen to identify those people at risk of diabetes and engage the public to increase the number of high risk individuals attending screening invitations but reducing the overall number of oral glucose tolerance tests. This study aims to test in a pragmatic way the use of such tools in a primary care setting administered by primary care staff as part of the NHS Health Check programme.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The time period before the development of symptomatic diabetes. For example, certain risk factors can be observed in subjects who subsequently develop INSULIN RESISTANCE as in type 2 diabetes (DIABETES MELLITUS, TYPE 2).

A method, developed by Dr. Virginia Apgar, to evaluate a newborn's adjustment to extrauterine life. Five items - heart rate, respiratory effort, muscle tone, reflex irritability, and color - are evaluated 60 seconds after birth and again five minutes later on a scale from 0-2, 0 being the lowest, 2 being normal. The five numbers are added for the Apgar score. A score of 0-3 represents severe distress, 4-7 indicates moderate distress, and a score of 7-10 predicts an absence of difficulty in adjusting to extrauterine life.

An anatomic severity scale based on the Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS) and developed specifically to score multiple traumatic injuries. It has been used as a predictor of mortality.

The qualitative or quantitative estimation of the likelihood of adverse effects that may result from exposure to specified health hazards or from the absence of beneficial influences. (Last, Dictionary of Epidemiology, 1988)

Urination of a large volume of urine with an increase in urinary frequency, commonly seen in diabetes (DIABETES MELLITUS; DIABETES INSIPIDUS).
