Abstract: 

Background: Diabetes is considered a major health problem due to its high prevalence and related severe complications. In this study, the incidence of type 2 diabetes has been investigated in 25-70 year old asymptomatic women referring to Isfahan Endocrine & Metabolism Research Center from 1996 to 2002.
Materials and Methods: Using selective sampling method, 500 asymptomatic women aged 25-70 were enrolled in the study. Oral glucose tolerance test was performed for all subjects at the beginning and every year thereafter.
Results: The means of the weight and age at the onset of diabetes were 70.6±13 kg and 52.9±13.4 years, respectively. Twenty subjects were diagnosed to be diabetic during the course of the study. The incidence of diabetes was 15.7, 11.4, 11.3 and 31.25 cases per 1000 person-year in 25-34, 34-44, 45-64 and > 65 years age groups, respectively. Impaired glucose tolerance was detected in 73 women, as well as impaired fasting glucose which was present in 18 subjects.
Conclusion: It seems that the incidence of type 2 diabetes in studied women is 1/4 to 1/3 compared to that of Mexican American women the same age group, but it equals the incidence of type 2 diabetes in non-Hispanic white American women. More research consisting of bigger sample size is recommended.
