RUBY - Risk Understanding By Yourself for Diabetes and Its Complications

Study Design

Through various publicity and out-reach programs, we intend to motivate and empower the general public to be pro-active at assessing their risk of diabetes. If the individual is deemed at risk of diabetes, they will be encouraged to seek medical advice. This will serve to:

1) Identify people at high risk so preventative measures can be implemented and

2) Provide early diagnosis to those who are unaware of their condition.

These early detection programs should enable these high risk subjects to seek treatment before symptoms or complications arise.
