According to IDRS score of MDRF, the study population were classified to be low, medium, and high risk for developing Type 2 diabetes were 34.69%, 47.34%, and 17.97%, respectively (Table 2).
Although various questionnaire methods have been adopted by various organizations, still the IDRS developed by MDRF (By Mohan V et al.) is a clear and usable tool utilizing the very simple risk factors such as age, waist circumference, physical activity level and family history of diabetes along with sociodemographic pattern, weight and height.
The study has been undertaken using standard tool like IDRS tool developed by MDRF. In this study, the comparison of risk factors for diabetes has been done on the basis of place of residence, i.e., slum versus non-slum.
