Full description

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) and type 2 diabetes (T2D) are currently the public health problems fastest growing globally. According to the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) is estimated to have diabetes approximately 382 million people in the world. It is shown that early interventions in lifestyle can reduce the burden of type 2 diabetes and factors of cardiovascular modifiable risk. This is an intervention study in cluster. 36-month integrated into 4 phases: Design and adaptation of educational intervention Population Screening Stepwise intervention program Evaluation results. For population screening test FINDRISC validated for the Latin American population will be employed and a score of 12 will be considered as a cutoff to all who have a score equal to or greater than 12 (moderate or high risk) they perform a test oral glucose tolerance (OGTT) according to the results 3 groups will be established High risk group: Subjects with FINDRISC score ≥12 and impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) Moderate risk group: Subjects with FINDRISC score ≥12 and impaired fasting glucose or norm tolerant Low risk group: Subjects with FINDRISC score <12. Intervention program: One year of duration, 3 types of programs are established. Lifestyle Intervention program_ Communitarian: Intervention program at Community level with Low risk group. Lifestyle Intervention program_ Informative: Program information intervention for the group with moderate risk. Lifestyle Intervention program_ structured: intervention program for members of high-risk group. An evaluation of the different variables are studied at baseline and the final of the intervention in the three groups established.
