We have examined the risk of subsequent ischemic heart disease (IHD) in men according to their initial fasting plasma glucose level in a prospective cohort study (Caerphilly Collaborative Study) of 4860 middle aged men from South Wales and Bristol, U.K. Ninety-four men reported themselves to be diabetic at initial screening and fasting venous plasma glucose levels were determined in these men and in a further 4519 non-diabetic men.
At follow-up new IHD events occurred twice as commonly in diabetics compared to non-diabetics and overall mortality was increased 4-fold.
Among non-diabetics however, increased IHD events only occurred in men with fasting values at the upper end of the distribution of baseline plasma glucose values [at 6.8 mmol/l (122 mg/dl) or more].
