Furthermore, population-based studies in well-defined cohorts of patients, to investigate the reduced life expectancies, are generally lacking. Computerized baseline data on a cohort of diabetic patients first attending our clinic during 1982-1985 were used to identify risk factors for increased mortality. This was carried out using an accelerated failure time (ACF) model. Out of 794 patients… CONTINUE READING
