To describe the type II diabetes population in primary care with special reference to treatment, other diseases and mortality during the last decade. To test the hypothesis that the type or combination of per oral glucose lowering drugs have different effects on the risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetic complications.

Diabetes Type II

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Time Perspective: Retrospective
Official Title: A Retrospective Epidemiological Study to Investigate Outcome and Mortality With Glucose Lowering Drug Treatment in Primary Care

Further study details as provided by AstraZeneca:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Composite end-point consisting of Cardiovascular Disease, elective coronary revascularisation and mortality [ Time Frame: The endpoints will be extracted from the medical records on one occassion, covering a period of one decade. ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Retinopathy, renal failure, hypoglycaemic episodes, other diabetic complications [ Time Frame: The endpoints will be extracted from the medical records on one occasion, covering a period of one decade. ]
  • Time from: Metformin (MET) to Insulin (INS) versus Metformin (MET) -> Metformin (MET)+Sulfonylurea (SU) ->Insulin (INS) [ Time Frame: The endpoints will be extracted from the medical records on one occasion, covering a period of one decade. ]
  • Number of consultations in primary care. Number of hospitalisations [ Time Frame: The endpoints will be extracted from the medical records on one occasion, covering a period of one decade. ]

Enrollment: 58326
Study Start Date: May 2010
Study Completion Date: August 2011
Primary Completion Date: August 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Diabetes type II patients, according to medical records, prescriptions or lab results, followed for >6 months after diagnosis.


Ages Eligible for Study:   Child, Adult, Senior
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population
Eligible subjects are all type II diabetes patients, found in medical records at the participating centres. Patient data from the period 1 January 1999 - 31 December 2009 will be included in the observation. To ensure a representative selection of primary care centers, selection of study sites will be based on the following criteria to ensure a representative sample of the Swedish population: a mix of rural and urban areas, public and private care providers, small, mid sized and large primary care centers.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients with type II diabetes, according to medical records, diagnosis, prescription or lab assessments

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patients followed by physician for less than 6 months after diagnosis of Diabetes type II
