Salvatore De Cosmo i wsp – Development and Validation of a Predicting Model of All-Cause Mortality in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus Diabetes Care online
RESULTS: Nine variables (age, BMI, diastolic blood pressure, LDL cholesterol, triglycerides, HDL cholesterol, urine albumin-to-creatinine ratio, and antihypertensive and insulin therapy) were included in the final predictive model
CONCLUSIONS: We developed and validated a parsimonious all-cause mortality equation in T2DM, providing also a user-friendly web-based risk calculator. Our model may help prioritize the use of available resources for targeting aggressive preventive and treatment strategies in a subset of very high-risk individuals.
