PICAZZO-PALENCIA, Esteban; ORTIZ-RODRIGUEZ, Jeyle  and  RAMIREZ-GIRON, Natalia. The risk of suffering Type 2 Diabetes among different generations of adults in Mexico. Pap. poblac [online]. 2021, vol.27, n.109, pp.119-142.  Epub Mar 28, 2022. ISSN 2448-7147.

This article aims to analyze the effect of age on the probability of developing Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (2DM) among Mexican adults between 20 and 50 years old. We estimate hierarchical equations with a Bernoulli distribution using data from the National Survey of Health and Nutrition, 2016. Results indicate that individuals of different age have differences in the risk of developing 2DM. In addition, it is found that age moderates the effect of having parents with diabetes and alcohol on the risk of having diabetes. The findings reveal that the best moment to intervene is in early age.

Keywords : Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus; prevalence; risk factors, age of onset.
