To examine the contribution of cardiovascular risk factors to the development of non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus, a prospective follow-up study was performed of a cohort, initially examined in a population survey on cardiovascular risk factors.
The survey was conducted from 1975 to 1978 in the Netherlands among 5700 men and women aged 20 to 65.
In 1988 a questionnaire on the prevalence of chronic diseases, including diabetes mellitus, was sent to all living participants of the initial survey.
The general practitioners of the persons who indicated to have diabetes mellitus were asked to confirm the diagnosis.
Diabetes mellitus was defined as current use of oral hypoglycemic drugs or insulin.
