Título Prevalence of cardiovascular risk factors in middle-aged type 2 diabetic automobile employees assessed at the workplace - The Praeford study
Información bibliográfica May 2007, Vol.49, No.5, p.481-483. Illus. 6 ref.
Resumen The purpose of this study was to assess cardiovascular risk factors among employees of German automotive plants who identified themselves as having type two diabetes mellitus. The proportion of subjects exceeding the target values for haemoglobin A1c (HbA1c), systolic blood pressure and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol was identified. Among 4234 employees, 91 employees with diabetes were identified (mean age 52 years). Only seven of these diabetic employees met all three recommended target values: blood pressure target values were achieved by 26%, HbA1c target values by 54% and LDL target values by 31% of employees. These findings call for new treatment and monitoring strategies for employees with diabetes.
