ABSTRACT
The article presents an insight concerning the recommendation to screen for type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM) issued by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF). The author argues that the recommendation is applicable only to a asymptomatic adults with blood pressure greater than 135/80 millimeter (mm) hectogram (Hg). He adds that the measurement of glycated hemoglobin is increasingly being considered as a screening tool for detection of type 2 DM.
