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.

This study tests the hypothesis that non-diabetic individuals with a high genetic risk score for type 2 diabetes have impaired glucose tolerance and insulin resistance compared to those wi...
The primary objective of the study is to assess the clinical utility of a genetic test for Type 2 diabetes risk in combination with standardized risk assessment compared with standardized ...
Patients treated with percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) require dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT). Preliminary assessment of the PRECISE-DAPT score is mandatory in order to assess th...
In an earlier study using electronic health records (EHR), we have identified nine factors to be significantly associated with FA risk. These nine predictors include Furosemide intravenous...
To develop a new non-invasive risk score for undiagnosed diabetes in Chinese and to evaluate the incident diabetes risk in those with high risk scores but no diabetes on initial testing.
Many countries lack resources to identify patients at risk of developing Type 2 diabetes mellitus (diabetes). We aimed to develop and validate a diabetes risk score based on easily accessible clinical...
A patient's prognosis and risk of adverse drug effects are important considerations for individualizing care of older patients with diabetes. This review summarizes the evidence for risk assessment an...
To analyse the clinical utility of trabecular bone score (TBS) evaluation for fracture risk assessment in glucocorticoid (GC)-treated patients compared with BMD assessment.
Coronary heart disease (CHD) is a leading cause of death globally, commonly through sudden cardiac death. Cardiac arrest of cardiac origin (CA) is associated with a poor prognosis and there is a great...
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).
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
