DIWA - Diabetes and Impaired glucose tolerance in Women and Atherosclerosis development study

Creator/Principal investigator(s)

Göran Bergström - University of Gothenburg, The Sahlgrenska Academy, Institute of Medicine

Description

All 64-year old women in the county of Gothenburg were invited to a screening examination including an OGTT. Glucose tolerance was defined for each participant according to the World Health Organization (WHO) criteria. Patients were divided in three sub-groups according to metabolic status and a randomized sample of patients were recruited from each group for a longitudinal follow-up study: diabetes mellitus (n = 220), impaired glucose tolerance (IGT, n = 204) or normal glucose tolerance (NGT, n = 188). Baseline examination was performed between 2002-2004 and follow-up examination in 2007-2009 (mean follow-up 5.5 years).
Datasets from papers published in open access is made available on request.

Purpose:

The aim of the DIWA-study is to investigate the development of atherosclerosis in women with different degrees of glucose control.
