Wajanavisit W Mail, Laohacharoensombat W

The authors conducted a prevalence survey of impaired fasting glucose and diabetes melli-
tus in 3,615 Shinawatra employees, and we also determined various risk factors of coronary artery
disease such as blood pressure level, body mass index and serum lipids. The prevalence of impaired
fasting glucose and diabetes mellitus were 1.7 per cent and 0.8 per cent respectively. The preva-
lences were more common in males and increased with increasing age. Coronary risk factors were
higher in impaired fasting glucose (IFG) and diabetes mellitus (DM) when compared with normal
glucose levels. There were also significant differences between impaired fasting glucose and
diabetes mellitus, except for pulse pressure, serum cholesterol level, LDL-cholesterol level and
HDL-cholesterol level.
