RAMOS CABRERA, Asmell; DEL RISCO PASTRANA, Francisco; VICTORIA BARZAGA, Héctor Oscar  and  MANRESA MARTINEZ, Ileana. Incidence valuation of diabetes mellitus in a health area. AMC [online]. 2007, vol.11, n.4. ISSN 1025-0255.

To know the incidence of diabetes mellitus under the international current concepts in a  health area, a cross-sectional study was carried out where it were applied the new criteria of the OMS for the inquest of  diabetes mellitus. The plasmatic glycemia without having eaten breakfast was used for the diagnosis of  this disease; it was carried out in the Basic Group of Work number 2 at "Ignacio Agramonte" Community Hospital from January to March  2003.  An increment of 465.5 x 100 000 people in the 2002 to 1687 x 100 000 people in the 2003, was reported, the incidence percent enlarged from 0.5% to 1.7%, which is 3.4 times upper than the one existing and there was correspondence with the international reports. For the first time a total of 12 people with abnormal levels of glycemia without having eaten breakfast were determined, what represented an incidence rate of 5063 x 100 000 people and an incidence percent of  5.05%.
