Abstract AIMS: To determine the effect of different glucose categories on incident cardiovascular disease (CVD) and all-cause mortality in a population-based cohort. METHODS: A total of 834 individuals aged 65 years and older without a history of CVD at baseline were stratified according to 2-h post-load glucose fasting glucose test into six categories including: (i) normal fasting glucose/normal glucose tolerance; (ii) prediabetes, (iii) isolated fasting hyperglycemia (IFH); (iv) isolated post-challenge hyperglycemia (IPH); (v) IPH and IFH; and (vi) known diabetes mellitus. The prognostic significance of these groups on CVD and total mortality were examined by Cox proportional hazard ratios in a multivariate adjusted model. RESULTS: Over 9 years of follow up, 186 incidents of CVD and 218 deaths occurred (72 CVD mortality).Of the population, 45.2\%, 30.7\%, 1.2\%, 6.1\% 4.7\%, and 11.9\% were normal fasting glucose/normal glucose tolerance, prediabetes IFH, IPH, IFH and IPH, and known diabetes mellitus, respectively. Multivariate adjusted hazard ratios for CVD were 1.13 (95\% CI 0.78-1.64), 1.03 (95\% CI 0.25-4.22), 1.17 (95\% CI 0.65-2.11), 2.52 (95\% CI 1.43-4.42) and 2.39 (95\% CI 1.55-3.69), and for CVD mortality were 0.59 (95\% CI 0.27-1.30), 2.02 (95\% CI 0.27-15.15), 1.26 (95\% CI 0.51-3.16), 3.57 (95\% CI 1.64-7.75), and 4.70 (95\% CI 2.54-8.69) for prediabetes, IFH, IPH, IFH and IPH, and known diabetes mellitus phenotypes, respectively. Corresponding hazard ratios for all-cause mortality in multivariate model adjusted for prevalent CVD were 1.07 (95\% CI 0.73-1.57), 0.59 (95\% CI 0.08-4.30), 0.92 (95\% CI 0.5-1.70), 2.31 (95\% CI 1.33-4.01) and 3.88 (95\% CI 2.70-5.55), respectively. CONCLUSION: Among the elderly population with newly diagnosed diabetes, only the combined IFH and IPH phenotype, but not IFH or IPH alone, was a significant predictor of CVD and mortality events. Prediabetes was not associated with any risk. Geriatr Gerontol Int 2015; ●●: ●●-●●. © 2015 Japan Geriatrics Society.
