DATA DRIVEN T2D PREDICTION

May 05, 2018

Four key predictors of Type 2 Diabetes. From the Swedish health databases of about 300,000 people monitored over 25 years, 8.1% (over 28,000) were identified to have Type 2 Diabetes. Those diagnosed positive had elevated levels of blood sugar, BMI, Triglycerides, and Uric acid (as seen in the red curves). This suggests monitoring these health parameters can help predict the risk of diabetes well ahead of time (in this case up to 25 years ahead of positive diagnosis). Data from Prof. Goran Walldius's group at Karolinska Institutet, Sweden, published in Wiley Online Library.

Table for predicting your chances of getting Type 2 diabetes. Our lifestyle impacts the likelihood of getting diabetes. Data collected over 20 years for 300,000 patients in Sweden can accurately predict the chances of getting Type 2 diabetes. The biggest contributors are triglycerides, blood glucose, and BMI (body mass index, or body weight). This table shows the probability of getting diabetes based on these factors. Data from Prof. Goran Walldius's group at Karolinska Institutet, Sweden. An example below shows how to use this table.

US population of 65+ and their percentage of total
 

How to find your probability (in percent) of getting Type 2 diabetes within 20 years:

(1) Pick your gender, (2) then your fasting triglycerides, and (3) your fasting glucose values; then (4) calculate your BMI, and finally (5) pick your age group. As an example, a men with <124 mg/dL fasting triglycerides and over 100 mg/dL fasting glucose, obese (BMI: >30) and age of 45 will have a 24% chances of getting Type 2 diabetes in next 20 years.
