Abstract

Objective: To assess 10-year risk of fatal cardiovascular disease (CVD) in type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM) patients without CVD and microalbuminuria by using the system for risk assessment SCORE, and to identify the risk according to age groups and distribution of patients according to the level of risk. Material and methods: Observational, cross-sectional study of 516 patients with DM type 2 without CVD and microalbuminuria. Results: Mean 10-year risk of fatal CVD assessed by SCORE system was 13.5 ± 11.4% (males vs females, 14.0 ± 11.4% vs 13.1 ± 11.4%; p= NS). Risk increased with the age, from 3.0 ± 0% in the age group 25-34 years to 29.6 ± 16.4% at the age of 65 years or above. Increased risk (≥5%) was identified in the majority of patients (n=466; 90.3%). Conclusion: Use of SCORE system in cohort of type 2 DM patients without CVD and microalbuminuria confirmed the need for intensive treatment for prevention of CVD.
