Prevalence of diabetes mellitus and of associated risk factors for atherosclerosis in a randomized population sample of western Sicily. Casteldaccia study.

Within the Targeted Programme of the Italian National Research Council "Preventive and Rehabilitative Medicine" subproject: Risk Factors, organized in nine centers on a national scale, the Operative Unit of Palermo carried out a transverse epidemiological study on a randomized population sample of western Sicily: Casteldaccia, 1984. 1.200 subjects subdivided by age in four decades (20-29; 30-39; 40-49; 50-59 years) and by sex (600 males and 600 females) were enlisted; the participation was 60.25% (No. 723; M = 364; F = 359). Following standardized procedures main cardiovascular risk factors were measured: glycaemia (GOD-PAP), triglycerides (enzymatic), total cholesterol (CHOD-PAP), HDL-cholesterol (MgCl2 dextran sulphate), apolipoproteins A1 and B (R.I.D.), B.M.I. (kg/m2), smoking habits and systolic and diastolic blood pressure (according to WHO manual on Cardiovascular Survey Methods). A questionnaire was used to record the familiar anamnesis, medical history of subjects, term of possible hyperglycaemia, current therapy (use of insulin, oral hypoglycaemic agent, dietetic treatment). The prevalence of diabetes mellitus was 8.16% (59/723): 4.67% (17/364) in males and 11.69% (42/359) in females. The most frequent risk factors associated with diabetes mellitus were; overweight (81%), hypercholesterolemia (49%), hypertriglyceridemia (45%), hypertension (37%) and cigarette smoking (15%).[1]
