Abstract

I read with interest the paper by Oka et al. [1]. The authors reported that 1-h plasma glucose level was a better predictor than 2-h plasma glucose for the development of Type 2 diabetes mellitus in 1445 Japanese workers in a follow-up study with a historical cohort design. A total of 95 participants developed Type 2 diabetes and the adjusted hazard ratios (HRs) for the fourth quartile of 1-h plasma glucose and 2-h plasma glucose values against the first quartile for Type 2 diabetes development were 42.5 (95% CI 5.7-315.2) and 4.4 (95% CI 1.8-10.8), respectively. The authors used several combinations for the adjustment, which confirmed the superiority of 1-h plasma glucose level for the prediction of Type 2 diabetes development.
