Introduction: Nowadays, the most important causes of mortality and disability include four non-communicable diseases, such as cardiovascular disease, cancers, chronic respiratory diseases, and diabetes. Out of these diseases, diabetes is the greatest epidemic in human history and has affected the greatest numbers worldwide. Therefore, the present study was conducted to screen the population aged 25-65 years in Zahedan regarding the risk of developing type II diabetes in 2016.

Materials and Methods: This cross-sectional descriptive-analytic study was performed on all 25- to 65-year-old Iranian population living in Zahedan. A total of 1000 samples who met the inclusion criteria were selected using multistage sampling and evaluated in this study. The data were collected through Finnish Type II Diabetes Risk Assessment Form which is a screening tool for the assessment of the risk of type II diabetes.

Results: The mean age of the samples was 21.37(11.05)years. Out of all participants, 57.1% and 42.9% of the subjects were male and female, respectively. According to the results, there was a significant difference between males and females regarding the mean score of the risk of developing diabetes (P=0.001). Moreover, a significant difference was observed between males and females regarding the mean score of the risk of developing diabetes in different categories of body mass index (P=0.001).

Conclusion: The results of screening 25-65 aged population living in Zahedan suggest that these individuals are not at a threatening condition in terms of diabetes risk factors. In fact, the mean score of this population regarding risk factors for type 2 diabetes is below 7, implying a very low probability to develop type II diabetes in this population.
