Abstract: The authors conducted a prevalence survey of impaired fasting glucose and diabetes mellitus 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 prevalences 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.
