Abstract

Type 2 diabetes prevention measures that include early detection through screening are imperative in stemming the rising prevalence of this disease. The aim of this study was to examine perceived risk for developing diabetes in light of an actual risk, in an undiagnosed population using the AUSDRISK scale. A cross-sectional sample of a university campus took part in a repeated measures assessment of perceived risk intersected with an actual risk assessment. Participants also indicated the likelihood of lifestyle changes subsequent to risk assessment.
