Fig. 30.1 Figure shows the development of diabetes in a four-year period in subjects with initially normal or impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) or with other cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors present or absent at baseline. In addition, patients with multiple risk factors were more likely to develop diabetes than those with no, or single, risk factors. TG = triglycerides; HYPER = hypertension; PAI-I = plasminogen activator inhibitor-1. Source: D'Agostino etal. 2004.2
