South Asian men and women had the highest rates of diabetes. Pakistanis and Bangladeshis of both sexes were more than five times as likely as the general population to have diabetes, and Indian men and women were almost three times as likely. Rates of diabetes among Black Caribbeans were also significantly higher than in the general population (risk ratios 2.51 for men and 4.19 for women). Rates of diabetes among the Chinese and Irish groups were not significantly different from the general population.
