Default New Way To Find People With Diabetes, UK

Researchers have developed software which could potentially identify over 600,000 people who are undiagnosed or at increased risk of Type 2 diabetes.

The research, published in the British Journal of General Practice, found that simple software can highlight people whose higher blood glucose levels have not been followed up.

The software was developed by Dr Tim Holt from the University of Warwick, and found that out of a sample of 3.6 million anonymous records, 33,000 had "borderline" results which would normally require a re-test, and 3,700 whose results suggested strongly they had undiagnosed diabetes.
