Prevalence and incidence of microvascular and macrovascular complications over 15 years among patients with incident type 2 diabetes
Our findings show that a substantial proportion of patients had existing complications including CKD, stable angina, and peripheral neuropathy at the time of T2D diagnosis. Results also show that among those newly diagnosed with T2D, the highest incidence rates of complications included peripheral neuropathy, CKD, and CVD (myocardial infarction, unstable angina, and stroke).
Time to incidence of microvascular and macrovascular complications was only a few years; peripheral vascular disease, stable angina, CKD, and peripheral neuropathy developed earlier in the disease course.BMJ Open Diabetes Research and Care – http://dx.doi.org/10.1136/bmjdrc-2020-001847

I’ve been out of town the past three weekends in a row. Prior to taking these trips I was feeling a bit burned out. I had little desire to continue my research activities. I had even less desire to write or post to my blogs. But as suddenly as my energy levels dipped, the mojo came back.
