Figure 1: Prevalence of insulin resistance among study participants by sex using the Insulin Resistance Score. 52 (41.6%) of the diabetes mellitus subjects had insulin resistance while 21 (28.4%) of the control group had insulin resistance (χ2 = 13.07; P = 0.001). The prevalence of insulin resistance among male and female diabetes mellitus subjects were 20 (36.4%) and 32 (45.7%) respectively (χ2 = 0.815; P = 0.367) while the prevalence among male and female controls were 7 (23.3%) and 14 (31.8%) respectively (χ2 = 0.632; P = 0.427). The prevalence was nonsignificantly higher in the females compared to the males in both groups
