OBJECTIVE — To evaluate screening strategies based on fasting plasma glucose (FPG), clin-
ical information, and the oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) for detection of diabetes or other hyperglycemic states—impaired fasting glucose (IFG) and impaired glucose tolerance— screening for glucose abnormalities using either fasting glucose or the oral glucosetolerance test (OGTT) in individuals aged RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS — We studied 8,286 African-American and
white men and women without known diabetes, aged 53–75 years, who received an OGTTduring the fourth exam of the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities Study. Using a split sample technique, we estimated the diagnostic properties of various clinical detection rules derived from logistic regression modeling. Screening strategies utilizing FPG, these detection rules, and/or the OGTT were then compared in terms of both the fraction of hyperglycemia cases detected and the additional clinical information. Postchal- sample fraction receiving different screening tests and identified as screen positive.
lenge hyperglycemia has been shown inlarge observational studies to be more RESULTS — Screening based on the IFG cut point (Ն6.1 mmol/l), followed by a clinical
detection rule for those below this value, detected 86.3% of diabetic case subjects and 66.0% of all hyperglycemia cases, identifying 42% of the sample as screen positive. Applying an OGTT for those positive by the rule provides diagnostic labeling and reduces the fraction that is screen positive to 29%. Another strategy, to apply an OGTT to those with an FPG cut point between 5.6and 6.1 mmol/l, also identifies 29% of the sample as screen positive, although it detects slightly CONCLUSIONS — Screening strategies based on FPG, complemented by clinical detection
