2010 (English)In: Diabetes Care, ISSN 0149-5992, E-ISSN 1935-5548, Vol. 33, no 9, 1983-1989 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
This is the first study in a developing country of the impact of glucose intolerance on mortality in an African population, and one of the first studies of a South Asian population. It shows that the impact on mortality in these populations in Mauritius is comparable to that seen in developed countries. These results are important in a global context for future health policy in light of the impact of the rapid increase in prevalence of diabetes, especially in developing nations.
