Data on more than 1,500 Danish participants with type 2 diabetes found that those in an intensive treatment group had a 7.3% prevalence of ankle-brachial index of 0.9 or less and 30.1% of participants had abnormal neuropathy results six years after screening, compared with 9.1% and 34.8% respectively in the routine care group. The researchers, writing in Diabetes Care, concluded there was no statistically significant effect of intensive management upon early detection of type 2 diabetes.
