Abstract :In order to facilitate early diagnosis and prevention, we began a series of investigations into the prevalence of diabetes mellitus in some farm villages in Okinawa in 1986 and found 5% prevalence. In 1993, we conducted a health screening survey in the Kumejima-Island with a population of 10,079 in which serum glucose level, obesity, serum cholesterol level and blood pressure were estimated on 1,647 inhabitants, 639 males and 1,008 females (mean $age \pm SD$ ; $62.8 \pm 11.7$). Excluding 53 persons who were previously diagnosed as diabetic, a 75g glucose tolerance test (GTT) was conducted for 184 persons among 245 persons who had a high serum glucose level, and 40 persons were diagnosed as diabetic according to the criteria of the Japan Diabetes Society. The prevalence of diabetes increased with age, and was 5.6 in males and in females 5.7% and, respectively. When including those who did not take the 75gGTT, the estimated prevalence was 6.7% in males and 6.3% in females. The age-adjusted prevalence was 5.7% in males and 5.2% in females, giving a similar trend found in other areas of Japan and a higher prevalence in males than in females. The prevalence was higher in those with obesity, hypertension and hypercholesterolemia, in accordance with previous reports.
