Abstract Patients with diabetes aged 35-64 years from four primary health care centres in Stockholm County were identified from electronic patient records (EPRs): diabetes prevalence occurred 414 of 15,317 men, and 250 of 15,388 women. The age- and sex-standardized prevalence of diabetes was as follows: Non-European immigrants, 5.82\% (95\% CI 5.06-6.58), European immigrants 1.96\% (95\% CI 1.53-2.39), and Swedish-born subjects 1.80\% (95\% CI 1.63-1.97). In conclusion, non-European immigrants showed a three-fold higher prevalence of diabetes compared to Swedish-born subjects.
