Introduction: Screening for diabetes is an important topic it is conducted by checking for diabetes in people who are without symptoms. Screening can detect patients at risk for the disease or people with less severe states of dysglycemia. Screening techniques could be based on the type of diabetes as well as the progress of prediabetes to diabetes or decrease the risk of complications linked with diabetes. A big study meta-analysis recommended that screening in people classified through screening as having prediabetes have some efficacy in preventing the onset of type 2 diabetes.

Aim of Work: In this review, we will discuss Screening for diabetes.

Methodology: We did a systematic search for Screening for diabetes using PubMed search engine ( and Google Scholar search engine ( All relevant studies were retrieved and discussed. We only included full articles.

Conclusions: The USPSTF proposes screening for abnormal blood glucose as part of cardiovascular risk assessment in adults aged forty to seventy years who are overweight or obese. Doctors should ask patients with abnormal blood glucose to intensive interventions to advise a healthy diet and physical activity.
