|Objective: The aim of our study was to determine the frequency of high risk individuals in non-diabetic people with a family history of diabetes in their first degree relatives for diabetes and pre diabetes based on American Diabetes Association (ADA) and Centers for Disease Control and prevention (CDC) guidelines. Method: We conducted a cross-sectional study in health care facilities with diabetes prevention and treatment units in north health network of Tehran, the capital of Iran. The inclusion criteria were diabetes free adults who were ≥20 years, had a family history of diabetes in at least one first degree family member and not being pregnant for women. This study concluded 408 participants. Results: About 20% of participants were male. Based on ADA diabetes risk test, mean (SD) score was 3.09 (1.45) and 62 (16.8%) of participants had scored more than five so were in a high risk group for developing diabetes. Women and men ADA score was 2.9±1.49 and 3.6±1.14, respectively (p<0.001). Using pre diabetes risk assessment demonstrated 187 (50.5%) in low risk and 132 (33.2%) in high risk groups. There was no significant difference between two sexes (p>0.05). Conclusion: About 17% and 33% of healthy persons with a family history of diabetes were in high risk groups for diabetes and pre diabetes, respectively.|
