Broader Risks seen in Type 2 Diabetes

A new study published in the New England Journal of Medicine

Adults with type 2 diabetes who did not have a known vascular disease died an average of six years earlier than those who did not have diabetes, recent study results revealed.

“About 40% of the years of life lost from diabetes can be attributed to nonvascular conditions, including about 10% attributable to death from cancer,” researchers from the Emerging Risk Factors Collaboration wrote in the New England Journal of Medicine.

They analyzed data from 820,900 people who participated in 97 prospective studies to determine whether type 2 diabetes or hyperglycemia was associated with risk for death from nonvascular conditions.
