This is a cross-sectional analytical study population based on a diagnostic validation phase is included. The study consists of two phases:
• Validation phase: where participants wil be included with and without diabetes mellitus type to value reproducibility and accuracy (validation) of the diagnostic tools proposed.
• Population Phase: where a study will be conducted on a population level to determine the diagnostic ability of the proposed tests
