Abstract

We performed a cross-sectional population-based study on 632 participants, aged 20-65, who were screened using the Finnish Diabetes Risk Score (FINDRISC) questionnaire. Optimal results for men were achieved at FINDRISC⩾7 (100.0% sensitivity and 0.78 AUC) and for women at FINDRISC⩾13 (60.0% sensitivity and 0.78 AUC).
