mortality associated with type 2 diabetes
a 50 year old with type 2 diabetes with no history of vascular disease has life expectancy reduced by 6 years compared to non-diabetics (these compares to 7 years reduction for smokers vs non-smokers)1)
~40% of the years lost from diabetes can be attributed to nonvascular conditions including 10% attributable to death from cancer
vascular, cancer and noncancer, nonvascular mortality rises with fasting glucose above 6 mmol/L to 50% greater at levels of 7mmol/L, and 100% greater for vascular deaths at levels of 8mmol/L or higher.
intensive glucose lowering with HbA1c target of < 6% instead of usual 7-7.9% target resulted in INCREASED 5 year mortality in type 2 diabetics.2)
