Abstract

Aim: Assessment of 10-year fatal cardiovascular risk (%) with SCORE model in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM) from Republic of Macedonia, adjusted for diabetic population. Methods and materials: Observational, cross-sectional study of cohort of 1,404 type 2 DM aged 25 to 65 years, without cardiovascular disease or cancer. 10-year fatal cardiovascular risk (%) with SCORE model was calculated for every patient, taking in consideration the increased relative risk of DM compared to non-diabetic population: 5 times in women and 3 times in men. Results: 884 patients of the study cohort were identified for the analysis. Risk assessed with SCORE model was 18.1 ± 18.1%, and was significantly higher in men compared to women (21.6 ± 19.9 vs 15.4 ± 16.2, p<0.001). Discussion and conclusion: Fatal cardiovascular risk assessment with SCORE model has confirmed the increased risk in patients with type 2 DM, and the importance of use of risk assessment models as support in the process of making treatment decisions.
