Diabetes research investigating risk for complications and comorbidity

The rapid increase of people with diabetes requires having a solid epidemiological knowledge base and developing high quality health care services and effective preventive strategies.

Issues investigated in this area cover a broad range of epidemiological studies in diabetes and issues related to prevention, risk factors and mortality in diabetes.

We will make use of large population surveys such as The Nord Trøndelag Health Survey and health records, such as the Norwegian Patient Registry.

Research opportunities are significant and will be exploited by merging with Death Registry and Norwegian Prescription Database. An important element of the research in this area will be a close cooperation with relevant clinical environments on studies related to diabetes related complications and comorbidity.
