Data collection was by face-to-face interview. Those who self-professed not to be diabetics underwent finger-prick glucose test following at least 8 hours of fasting. The overall prevalence of diabetes mellitus (known and newly diagnosed) was 11.6%. The Indians had the highest prevalence of 19.9% followed by Malays 11.9% and Chinese 11.4%. The prevalence of people with known diabetes and newly diagnosed diabetes was 7.0% and 4.5% respectively. Impaired Fasting Glycaemia was found to be 4.2%. Majority (73.5%) of the patients used government healthcare facilities for their diabetic care. Usage of insulin alone or in combination was low at 7.2% of patients. Only 45.05% of known diabetics have ever had their eye examined. Amputees formed 4.3% of the patients with known diabetes while 3.4% had suffered a stroke event and 1.6% was on some form of renal replacement therapy.
