This study has investigated the prevalence of type 2 diabetes among 1119 police officers in Guinea-Bissau. Those with a random blood glucose (RBG) > 8.0 mol/l had HbA1c (glycated haemoglobin) testing. Diabetes (HbA1c > 6.5%) was present in 4.1%, and pre-diabetes (HbA1c 5.7-6.5%) was present in a further 4.2%. Factors associated with diabetes were age, weight and ethnicity.
