The aims of this study were to provide a contemporary picture of mortality and causes of death in Europe following a diagnosis of type 1 diabetes made before the 15th birthday, and to examine excess mortality by country for possible links to incidence level or national prosperity. Thirteen population-based EURODIAB registers in 12 countries followed-up(More)

The aim was to analyze the effects of body mass index (BMI), low-dose exposure, mixtures of persistent organic pollutants (POPs), and lipid adjustment on the relationship between POP concentrations and diabetes and prediabetes in the general adult population of Catalonia (Spain). Serum concentrations of POPs were measured by gas chromatography with(More)
INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to obtain an estimate of the incidence of cerebrovascular disease (CVD) in the Spanish population in 2002. METHODS The study involved data on patients aged over 24 years for the year 2002 contained in both the death register and the Minimum Basic Data Set from 65 of the 84 Catalan general hospitals(More)
OBJECTIVE Determine treatment adherence in patients with multiple chronic conditions (MCC). METHODS A random patient sample ≥ 15 years, discharged from hospital with ≥1 chronic conditions (CC) was interviewed after 6-12 months. Analysis included variables in 5 dimensions (WHO): socio-demographics, disease, treatment, patient and health system(More)
INTRODUCTION Dyslipidemia is a significant contributor to the elevated CVD risk observed in type 2 diabetes mellitus. We assessed the prevalence of dyslipidemia and its association with glucose metabolism status in a representative sample of the adult population in Spain and the percentage of subjects at guideline-recommended LDL-C goals.
