Researchers evaluated 1985-2014 data from the National Health Interview Survey involving 677,051 adults with and without diabetes, ages 20 and older, and found significant reductions in all major cardiovascular disease mortality from 1988 to 2015, except for adults ages 20 to 54. The findings in Diabetes Care revealed those with diabetes had significant 10-year relative mortality changes for major CVD, ischemic heart disease and stroke, but not arrhythmia, with men having greater CVD mortality reductions than women.
