First, the bimodality of glucose distributions in populations with high prevalence of diabetes suggested that 11. Most of the time, symptoms are not severe, or may be absent; consequently, hyperglycemia of sufficient degree to cause pathological and functional changes may be present for a long time before the diagnosis is made. When choosing the best way to assess physical activity, it is important that the assessment tool i accurately represents physical activity of the study population and ii focuses on the component of energy expenditure that encompasses the 79 greatest proportion of total energy expenditure for that population. This outstanding review gathered most of the contributions, clinical and population based, on the subject of diabetes epidemiology and highlighted the many gaps in our diabetes epidemiology knowledge at that time. Trends in Diabetes Prevalence and Incidence. It is essential reading for general practitioners, diabetologists, clinical endocrinologists, cardiologists, epidemiologists, nurses, dieticians, and other diabetes care providers, as well as health care decision makers.
In a second paradigm, no assumptions are made about etiology, but components are simply selected by the statistical strength of their association with other components, and investigation of these associations may then lead to insights into the underlying causes Figure 4. Some other studies provide indirect support for this hypothesis. The New England Journal of Medicine, 346, 393—403. The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, 55, 1018—23.
