The following questions will help you to find out if you are at higher risk of having pre-diabetes or type 2 diabetes . Pre-diabetes is a condition where blood sugar levels are higher than normal, but not high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. You can have pre-diabetes or undiagnosed type 2 diabetes without having any obvious warning signs or symptoms.
Knowing your risk can help you to make healthy choices now that will reduce your risk or even prevent you from developing diabetes.
You will be asked questions about important risk factors for diabetes. These include your age, family history of diabetes, ethnicity, and other factors. You will also be asked to measure your waist circumference.
The Quality of Life Instruments Database (QOLID) is a collaborative project between the Information Resources Centre of MAPI and the Istituto Nazionale. The site facilitates the presentation of synthesized, reliable and updated data on patient reported outcomes instruments. QOLID lists 1,000 PRO questionnaires and provides information on 300 (including measures of health status, symptoms, quality of life, patient satisfaction, adherence to treatment), either domain-, disease- or population-specific. The site has a free access section, and a restricted area for members.
The Canadian Health Measures Survey (CHMS) collects information relevant to the health of Canadians by means of direct physical measurements such as blood pressure, height, weight and physical fitness through interviews and direct exams at mobile clinics. The webpage explains methodologies used to obtain information about Canadians that cannot be captured or accurately reported through self-reporting questionnaires.
