Objective To evaluate the current use of Australian Type 2 Diabetes Risk Assessment Tool (AUSDRISK) as a screening tool to identify individuals at high risk of. The AUSDRISK is a tool that can determine if you are risk of developing type 2 diabetes in the next 5 years. Check your risk. A Elizabeth Street, Melbourne, .

The prediction model with waist circumference only works well both in terms of discrimination ausdriks calibration. BMI, waist circumference, or both may be used as the obesity parameter.

Australian Government Department of Health. In identified high-risk patients, enables further investigation and appropriate management of risk and lifestyle factors to prevent the development of diabetes.

Australian type 2 diabetes risk assessment tool (AUSDRISK)

It was developed using data from Australia with a predominantly white Anglo-Celtic populationand so absolute risk levels may vary in other populations. Therefore, we tested the substitution of BMI for waist circumference but found a loss of discriminative power. History of high blood glucose. Diabetes Res Clin Pract. Diagnostic yool for diabetes Australia: In the paper, we have described the reason why we chose to use waist circumference in detail. It is straightforward, and gives a reasonable assessment of diabetes risk.


The diabetes risk score: If an AUSDRISK score of 12, the point at which sensitivity and specificity were maximised on the ROC curve, was selected as the threshold for increased risk of incident diabetes, then the probability of developing incident diabetes during 5-year follow-up was History of high blood glucose. The study’s authors recommend using waist circumference only, as it aausdrisk the greatest discriminatory power.


Similarly, as the BMES did not collect data on a ausdriek of high blood glucose level, we assumed that no participants had such a history.

These versions include a risk factor pertaining to fruit and vegetable consumption, which was not a significant predictor of diabetes in the final model but was added for its value as a public health message; one point is allocated for those who consume less than one serve of fruit or vegetable per day.


A score developed specifically for a population with a limited age range is likely to give less auscrisk to age categories than a score derived from a population with a wider age range. The nine risk factors included in the final model age, sex, ethnicity, parental history of diabetes, history of high blood glucose, use of antihypertensive medications, smoking, physical inactivity and waist circumference category are the terms used in the AUSDRISK questionnaire. Have you ever been found to have otol blood glucose sugar for example, in a health examination, during an illness, during pregnancy?
