1659-P: A Systematic Review of Trends in All-Cause Mortality among People with Diabetes

Publication Date Jun 1, 2019


Some studies have reported falling mortality among populations with diabetes, but the consistency of this trend is unclear. We systematically reviewed studies published from 1980-2017 reporting all-cause mortality across 2 time-periods in people with diabetes. A total of 35 studies were found, providing data on 56 sex-specific or total populations with diabetes or type 2 diabetes. All studies were from high-income countries. Mortality declined in 80% of populations with diabetes in the 1980s, 53% in the 1990s, and 85% from 2000 onwards (Table). Falling mortality in diabetes occurred in 87% of Europid populations and in 10% of non-Europid populations. Of 25 populations with age-specific data, mortality declined in 29% of populations aged <40 years and in >60% of populations aged >55 years. Of 37 populations that reported on those with and without diabetes, greater or similar mortality reduction was observed among those with diabetes than without diabetes in 70% of populations. In conclusion, mortality has declined in the majority of Europid populations with diabetes since 1980. However, most non-Europid and most younger populations show no such declines. Disclosure L.
