Prevention of type 2 diabetes: For scores ofapproximately one person in every seven will develop diabetes. I would recommend using the prediction model with waist circumference, but without BMI. Impaired glucose tolerance and impaired fasting glycaemia: Approximately one person in every will develop diabetes. Analyses were conducted using Ausdrisi statistical software, version These ausxrisk were derived from the AusDiab cohort, which used BMI instead of waist circumference as the xusdrisk of obesity and all other risk factors included in the final model.

Examining its ability to predict these two conditions is beyond the scope of the current analysis. The substitution of BMI for waist circumference resulted in a model Model 6 with lower discrimination than the final model with waist circumference Model 5.

In addition to its predictive value, the AUSDRISK performed well in discriminating between those who had and those who did not have undiagnosed diabetes in the cross-sectional baseline AusDiab study.

This study had some limitations. This not only captures the variation in risk of diabetes caused by ethnic differences but also suggests that AUSDRISK has broader application for different Australian ethnic populations.
