Cost-Effective Screening For Type II Diabetes

Using a computer model of the US population, researchers determined that screening is cost-effective when started between the ages of 30 and 45, with screenings repeated every 3 to 5 years.

Doctors say the screenings could be combined with cholesterol and blood pressure measurements.

More than 23 million Americans are estimated to have type II diabetes.
