Body mass index and type 2 diabetes in Thai adults: defining risk thresholds and population impacts.

We aimed to determine the BMI threshold associated with increased type 2 diabetes (T2DM) risk and to calculate the proportion of T2DM cases attributable to overweight and obesity in the Thai population.
