Core Tip In the present study, 32.9% young adults were pre-diabetic whereas 10.8% were pre-hypertensive. Around 2.7% young adults had both pre-diabetes and pre-hypertension. Among the pre-hypertensives, 25% also had pre-diabetes. However among the pre-diabetics, 8.2% had pre-hypertension. The correlation between systolic blood pressure and fasting plasma glucose was not statistically significant. However, the correlation between diastolic blood pressure and fasting plasma glucose was significant. The mean diastolic blood pressure of pre-diabetics (82 ± 5 mmHg) was significantly higher than normoglycemics (79 ± 6 mmHg). Upon multiple linear regression analysis, it was observed that body mass index (? = 0.149), diastolic blood pressure (? = 0.375) and serum LDL (? = 0.483) were significantly associated with fasting plasma glucose.
