Glycemic Control and Risk of Cardiovascular Disease Hospitalization and All-Cause Mortality ONLINE FIRST

J Am Coll Cardiology: May 1, 2013

Objective  This study evaluated the relationship between glycemic control and cardiovascular disease (CVD) hospitalizations and all-cause mortality among type 2 diabetes patients in a real-world setting.

Background  Clinical trials have not established that tight glycemic control reduces CVD events and may be associated with increased mortality. Observational studies of specific cohorts have reported increased risk of those outcomes at both high and low glycated hemoglobin (A1C) levels. Read more
