Results: The study included 1000 consecutive Egyptian patients who werereferred to undergo coronary angiography for suspected ischemic heart disease(IHD). They were screened for prediabetes with either impaired fasting glucose(IFG) or impaired glucose tolerance (IGT). The mean age was 52.35 ± 7.02years. Overall 23% of patients had prediabetes, either isolated IFG, isolated IGT orboth.. Among female patients 26.33 % were prediabetic while 21.43% malepatients were prediabetic. Females and prediabetic patients had a higher BodyMass Index (BMI). Prediabetes was more prevalent among patients with acutecoronary syndrome (ACS) than patients with stable ischemic heart disease(IHD).

Conclusion: Prevalence of prediabetes is higher among Egyptian patients withIHD and they should be screened for it.
