Non-diabetic hyperglycaemia

On Wednesday 26 August the National Cardiovascular Intelligence Network published their analysis of the Health Survey for England data on non-diabetic hyperglycaemia.

The report highlights that 5 million people aged 16 years and over are estimated to have non-diabetic hyperglycaemia.  This equals 11.4% of the population of this age group. At local authority level, non-diabetic hyperglycaemia is estimated to range from 8.5% to 14.0%.

The characteristics of people with non-diabetic hyperglycaemia were examined and include:


A comparison was also undertaken on the performance of the four commonly used risk assessment tools available in the UK that can be used to identify people at high risk of developing diabetes. Optimising for sensitivity and specificity with respect to predicting non-diabetic hyperglycaemia, all tools demonstrated a comparable level of performance. You can find the report here.
