* Defined as fasting blood glucose equal to or higher than mmol/L, or on medication for raised blood glucose, or with a history of diagnosis of diabetes.
** High blood glucose is defined as a distribution of fasting plasma glucose in a population that is higher than the theoretical distribution that would minimize risks to health (derived from epidemiological studies). High blood glucose is a statistical concept, not a clinical or diagnostic category.
