The present study evaluates the risk of development of Type 2 Diabetes in the population of Jammu region of J&K using Indian Diabetes Risk Score (IDRS). A detailed scoring pattern where in two modifiable (waist and hip circumference) and two nonmodifiable risk factors (age and family history) were taken into consideration. The results confirmed that almost 50% of the studied population has a very high risk score towards development of T2D. Obese (62%) and pre-obese (56%) participants belonged to the high risk category according to IDRS. More diabetics (54%) compared to non-diabetics (35%) belonged to the high risk IDRS category. In conclusion, IDRS is a simple, fast, non-invasive, inexpensive and a reliable tool to identify the risk of developing T2D in the population of Jammu and Kashmir. Obese and Pre-obese subjects have high risk category of development of T2D.
