Abstract

Objective: Rates of non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus have risen sharply in recent years among blacks in the U.S. and the U.K. Increases in risk have likewise been observed in the island nations of the Caribbean and in urban West Africa. To date, however, no systematic comparison of the geographic variation of NIDDM among black populations has been undertaken.
