    Predicts risk of having previously undiagnosed type 2 diabetes.
    Favorite

    INSTRUCTIONS

    Use to estimate risk that patient currently has undiagnosed diabetes (i.e., NOT future risk of developing diabetes). Study cohort involved mostly white English patients, so use with caution in other populations.
    Why Use

    Most diabetes risk scores are validated against an outcome of clinically diagnosed diabetes rather than using a design in which the whole study population undergoes the diagnostic test. This leads to bias, as the variables included in risk scores are related to the patient characteristics likely to encourage doctors to undertake diagnostic testing. The Cambridge Diabetes Risk Score is validated in populations that underwent diagnostic testing to reduce this bias.

    Advice

    Guidelines vary, but the threshold for formal screening should be lower in patients with higher risk for undiagnosed diabetes.
