Socioeconomic factors and hypoxia play major roles in the prevalence of glucose intolerance in highlanders. Hypoxemia and polycythemia were closely associated with glucose intolerance after adjustment for the effects of lifestyle changes in our study. Tibetan people may be vulnerable to glucose intolerance, with polycythemia as a sign of poor hypoxic adaptation. Epigenetics is also play a role in its vulnerability with quick lifestyle change. Prevention of lifestyle-related diseases and health education should be advocated, especially in high altitude dwellers with rapidly prevailing socioeconomic globalization.
