Abstract

Aim: This study aimed to screen healthy individuals with the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Methods: This study was a cross-sectional study with a simple random sampling technique. The instrument used was the CANRISK questionnaire. Results: Approximately 327 respondents participated in this study. The result of the study shows that 34.5% (n = 113) of participants had a low-risk factor, 40.7% (n = 133) had a medium risk factor, and approximately 24.8% (n = 81) of them had a high-risk factor for developing type 2 diabetes mellitus in the next ten years based on the CANRISK questionnaire assessment. There was a positive correlation between the total score of the CANRISK and age (p = 0.000; r = 0.511), BMI (p = 0.000; r = 0.657), and waist circumference (p = 0.000; r = 0.673). In a differential test analysis, there were significant differences between gender (p = 0.000), history of hypertension (p = 0.000), family history of diabetes mellitus (p = 0.001), and education (p = 0.001) in the risk category of the CANRISK. Conclusion: The higher the total score obtained based on the CANRISK questionnaire, the higher the risk for developing type 2 diabetes mellitus in the next ten years.
