Explaining the increase of diabetes prevalence and plasma glucose in mauritius. Diabetes Care,35(2), 87-91. United States: American Diabetes Association.

OBJECTIVE Secular trends in the epidemiology of diabetes are best described by studying the same population over time, but few such studies exist. Using surveys from Mauritius in 1987 and 2009, we examined 1) the change in the prevalence of diabetes, 2) the extent to which changes in traditional diabetes risk factors explained the increase, and 3) the change in the distribution of plasma glucose levels over time.
