Data on 1,098 adults ages 40 to 79 with diabetes diagnosed before age 30 showed that 15% of those who had insulin-only treatment, 12.5% of those treated with insulin and oral hypoglycemic agents and 7.3% of those who did not undergo insulin therapy died after a mean follow-up of 3.9 years. Only 4.6% of those who did not have diabetes died within that time frame. End-stage renal disease and coronary artery disease, which were the leading causes of death, had hazard ratios twice as high as that of all-cause mortality, researchers reported in Diabetes Care.
