Abstract
Objective. To study trends in body mass index (BMI) at diagnosis of diabetes in all young Swedish adults in the age range of 15-34 years registered in a nation-based registry.



Design. The BMI was assessed at diagnosis in diabetic patients 15-34 years of age at diagnosis, for a period of 17 years (1983-1999). Islet cell antibodies (ICA) were measured during three periods (1987-1988, 1992-1993 and 1998-1999).



Setting. A nationwide study (Diabetes Incidence Study in Sweden).



Subjects. A total of 4727 type 1 and 1083 type 2 diabetic patients.



Main outcome measures. Incidence-year specific BMI adjusted for age, gender and time of diagnosis (month).

Setting. A nationwide study (Diabetes Incidence Study in Sweden).



Subjects. A total of 4727 type 1 and 1083 type 2 diabetic patients.



Main outcome measures. Incidence-year specific BMI adjusted for age, gender and time of diagnosis (month).



Results. Body mass index at diagnosis increased significantly both in type 1 (21.4 ± 3.6 to 22.5 ± 4.0; P < 0.0001) and in type 2 (27.4 ± 6.8 to 32.0 ± 6.0; P < 0.0001) diabetic patients, also when adjusted for age, gender and month of diagnosis. A similar significant increase in BMI was found in type 1 diabetic patients and in type 2 diabetic patients in the periods 1987-1988, 1992-1993 and 1998-1999; years when ICA were assessed and considered in the classification of diabetes. Despite this increase in BMI, there was no increase in the incidence of diabetes in young-adult people in Sweden.



Conclusion. Body mass index at diagnosis of diabetes in subjects 15-34 years of age has substantially increased during 1983-1999 in Sweden when adjusted for age, gender and month of diagnosis. (Less)
