OBJECTIVE- We sought to ascertain quality-of-life measures and utility values associated with visual acuity in type 2 diabetes.
RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS- The Medical Outcome Study Short Form with 36 items (SF-36) was administered to 4,051 individuals with type 2 diabetes who were enrolled in the Lipids in Diabetes Study, and their best attainable vision was determined using an Early Treatment of Diabetic Retinopathy Study chart, expressed as a LogMAR score....

Comment on PROactive study results
Lancet 2006; 367:25-26
RR Holman, R Retnakaran, A Farmer and R Stevens
The PROactive study has provided an exploratory estimate of the relative risk reduction attributable to pioglitazone for a composite endpoint of all-cause mortality, non-fatal myocardial infarction, and stroke. Although this secondary endpoint was not prespecified and is not significant when adjusted for multiple testing, it is of interest because of the possibility that the observed 16% relative risk reduction might not be mediated through established macrovascular risk factors such as blood pressure, lipids, and glycaemia....
