Type 2 diabetes: Study identifies new predictor putting people at ‘high risk’ of diabetes


The inverse relationship, however, is less widely understood.

Anxin Wang, senior author of the study, led a team of researchers from the China National Clinical Research Centre for neurological Diseases, at Beijing Tiantan Hospital in Beijing in China.

He said: “Identification of individuals at high risk of developing Type 2 diabetes is of utmost importance since early intervention can help prevent the onset and slow the progress of the condition.

“Since people with either hypertension or arterial stiffness tend to have a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes, we investigated which of these factors may be more effective in predicting an individual’s future risk of Type 2 diabetes.”
