Effectiveness and safety of metformin in 51 675 patients with type 2 diabetes and different levels of renal function: a cohort study from the Swedish National Diabetes Register
TLDR
Metformin showed lower risk than insulin for CVD and all-cause mortality and slightly lower risk for all- cause mortality compared with other OHA, in these 51 675 patients followed for 4 years, and the benefits of metformin use clearly outbalance the risk of severe side effects. Expand
Psychosocial work environment, job mobility and gender differences in turnover behaviour: a prospective study among the Swedish general population
TLDR
The results indicate that workers will seek to improve poor work environment by changing jobs, with men tended to engage in job mobility when exposed to adverse psychosocial factors, while women did not. Expand
A longitudinal general population-based study of job strain and risk for coronary heart disease and stroke in Swedish men
TLDR
Exposure to occupational psychosocial stress defined as job strain or low control increased the risk for CHD, especially among smokers and blue-collar workers, and there was no increased risk for stroke in any of the JDC categories. Expand
Gender differences in antihypertensive drug treatment: results from the Swedish Primary Care Cardiovascular Database (SPCCD).
TLDR
Women have higher systolic and lower diastolic blood pressures, irrespective of comorbidity, and men have interrupted treatment more often with ACEIs/ARBs, which could affect outcome and warrant further investigation. Expand
Predictors of smoking cessation: A longitudinal study in a large cohort of smokers.
TLDR
Successful smoking cessation is common in middle-aged smokers, and is associated with few smoking years and higher education, while an acute episode of ischaemic heart disease encouraged smoking cessation in the study population. Expand
Relation Between Lipid Profile and New-Onset Atrial Fibrillation in Patients With Systemic Hypertension (From the Swedish Primary Care Cardiovascular Database [SPCCD]).
TLDR
In a large hypertensive population, an inverse association between total cholesterol and new-onset AF for both men and women is found, confirming previous reports of a dyslipidemia paradox. Expand
Predictions by early indicators of the time and height of the peaks of yearly influenza outbreaks in Sweden
TLDR
New robust methods are described and applied to weekly Swedish data on influenza-like illness and weekly laboratory diagnoses of influenza (LDI) and it was found that the ILI variable is not a good proxy for the LDI variable. Expand
Robust outbreak surveillance of epidemics in Sweden.
TLDR
A semiparametric method is applied to Swedish data on tularaemia and influenza to detect a change from a constant level to a monotonically increasing incidence and works well. Expand
An integrated approach to processing WHO-2016 verbal autopsy data: the InterVA-5 model
TLDR
Despite the inherent difficulties of determining “truth” in assigning cause of death, these findings suggest that the InterVA-5 model performs well and succeeds in harmonising across a range of input formats. Expand
Sufficient Reduction in Multivariate Surveillance
TLDR
A general version of a theorem for the sufficient reduction of processes that change with known time lags is given and a simulation study illustrates the benefits or the methods based on the sufficient statistics. Expand
