Brief Summary:
The investigators hypothesize that the HbA1c shows a rising trend in pre-diabetics and normal population with risk factors of developing type 2 DM. There is no known diabetes model for predicting incident diabetes in an individual which takes into account the rate of change of HbA1c (dx/dt). In such cases, the rate of change of HbA1c may give the physicians lead time needed to implement the Diabetes Prevention Program measures.

Condition or disease

Low risk group
Patients will be stratified based on risk factors significantly contributing to diabetes type 2.
Intermediate risk group
High risk group

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Study the rate of change of HbA1c in normal population with known risk factors of diabetes [ Time Frame: one year ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Diabetes prediction model based on the rate of change in HbA1c [ Time Frame: one year ]
    To develop a mathematical model which will predict the onset of type 2 dm based on the rate of change in HbA1c valued leading to development of pre-diabetes
