Diabetes questionnaire

Simple, practical, non-invasive and inexpensive methods are needed to identify individuals at high risk for IGT and diabetes and to limit the proportion of the population requiring diagnostic glucose tolerance tests.  IDF recommends the use of brief patient questionnaires to help healthcare professionals to quickly identify people who may be at a higher risk and who need to have their level of risk further investigated. This type of questionnaire could also be used by individuals for self-assessment.
