Slide: 31 of 35

Macrovascular and Microvascular Long-Term Clinical Outcomes of Diabetes

There were 41 new studies identified in addition to the 25 studies included in the 2007 evidence report that addressed long-term clinical outcomes such as mortality, cardiovascular disease, stroke, retinopathy, nephropathy, and neuropathy. However, the new studies were generally of short duration (less than 1 year) and had few long-term events (such as death and cardiovascular disease), making any estimates of risk difference very imprecise. Therefore, most comparisons for this key question had a low strength of evidence.
