Coronary heart disease is the leading cause of mortality among persons with diabetes mellitus, but the factors that account for this high coronary heart disease mortality remain unclear.
In the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey I Epidemiologic follow-up Study, conducted from 1982 to 1984, 92 deaths from coronary heart disease were found to have occurred among 602 diabetic participants and 558 deaths from coronary heart disease were found to have occurred among 12,562 nondiabetic participants during the follow-up period (1971-1984; average follow-up, 10 years).
Using proportional hazards analysis, the authors found age, male sex, severe over-weight, and non-leisure-time physical inactivity to be significantly associated with coronary heart disease mortality among persons with diabetes.
