The primary endpoint at ten year follow up is the modelled 10-year risk of cardiovascular disease
Secondary endpoints at ten year follow up will include:
- Time to first event of composite CVD endpoint. This compromises of CVD mortality, CVD morbidity (non-fatal stroke, non-fatal myocardial infarction, all revascularisations, amputations (except for traumatic)).
- All cause mortality.
- Changes in biochemical outcomes including HbA1c levels, total, HDL & LDL cholesterol and triglycerides collected through medical records.
- Microvascular endpoints: Neuropathy measured by the Michigan neuropathy questionnaire; Renal function through Albumin Creatinine ratio (ACR) & estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) blood results; and development of eye complications through assessment of latest retinal image and eye examination.
- Most recent clinical height and weight measures and blood pressure readings from medical records.
- Other health status outcomes such as smoking status, alcohol consumption, physical activity (IPAQ) through self report questionnaire.
- Functional status (SF36); health utility (EQ5D); quality of life and well being measures specific to diabetes (AddQoL & DTS); and health service use and prescribed medication(Adapted Aberdeen HSRU).
- Quality of GP/Nurse therapeutic relationship using an approved adapted version of the CARE measure.
- Diet, using a FFQ previously delivered at 5 year follow up.
- Additional physical activity data using EPAQ2.
