Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Do Air Force personnel who fail the Air Force physical fitness test have a higher incidence of pre-diabetes than those who pass the test? [ Time Frame: within 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Do Air Force personnel who fail the Air Force physical fitness test have a higher incidence of pre-diabetes than those who pass the test?


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • And for those who fail, do they have higher cardiovascular risks as correlated with fasting lipid panel. [ Time Frame: within 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    And for those who fail, do they have higher cardiovascular risks as correlated with fasting lipid panel.
