Title:
Retrospective cohort study of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) in the Wirral peninsula: complexity science
Authors:
Nwaneri, Chukwuemeka
Abstract:
T2DM continues to be a public health burden with its increasing incidence, prevalence, and mortality risks. The aim of this thesis was to examine a population-based cohort of 22,000 people with T2DM diagnosed between 1 January 2000 and 31 December 2010 within the Wirral Peninsula, UK with the aim of: Assessing factors relating to all-cause, cardivascular-, malignancy-, and non-cardiovascular mortality; evaluating the role of glycaemic control, socioeconomic status, smoking, dyslipidaemia, blood pressure, obesity, and nephropathy, as predicting risk factors for mortality; assessing the influence of age at diagnosis, duration of diabetes, year of diagnosis and gender on mortality; examining the life expectancy and mortality patterns and measuring the years of life lost as a result of a diagnosis of T2DM; applying Complexity Science to the dynamic interplay of the various factors in T2DM that lead to unpredictability in health outcomes.
