Abstract 1. (1) The crude poit prevalence of diabetes mellitus in Toowoomba is estimated at 22.6/1000. This figure is certainly the lower limit of the true figure. 2. (2) Diabetes Mellitus has a higher prevalence in those over 60 than those under 60. 3. (3) If glycosuria is used as an indicator of diabetes mellitus many cases of the disease will be missed. 4. (4) Diabetes in the Toowoomba survey was more common in males than females. The reason for this sex difference, if in fact it exists, is not known.
