METHODS HbA1c and FPG was determined in 2,362 non-DM participants in the multicenter, randomized, investigator-initiated TWENTE III trial, in order to identify Pre-DM (HbA1c 42-47mmol/mol; FPG 6.1- 6.9 mmol/L) and DM (HbA1c>=48mmol/mol; FPG >7 mmol/L). Another 624 patients had medically treated DM. The main clinical outcome parameter was a composite endpoint consisting of death, myocardial infarction, or revascularisation.
RESULTS Glycaemic state was known in 2,986 trial participants: Pre- DM was present in 324 (11%), DM in 793 (27%), and normoglycaemia in 1,869 (63%) patients. Patients with Pre-DM and DM differed from normoglycemic patients in cardiovascular risk factors. The composite clinical endpoint in Pre-DM occurred in 11.1%, in DM in 10.5%, and in normoglycemic patients in 5.7% (p
