Management

  • In Australia, patients with scores ≥12 should be investigated for possible diabetes and enrolled for advice regarding diet, weight control, and exercise.

Diagnostic criteria for diabetes (Australia):

    • Fasting blood glucose (FBG) ≥7.0 mmol/L, confirmed by a second reading on a separate day OR
    • Oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) showing FBG ≥7.0 mmol/L or 2-hour blood glucose ≥11.1mmol/L OR
    • Hemoglobin A1c (HgbA1c) ≥48 mmol/mol (6.5%) on two separate occasions.

Critical Actions

Monitor for symptomatic diabetes (e.g. polyuria, polydipsia, loss of sensation).
