  1. 95% confidence intervals in brackets. The following covariates were included in the models: Age, region of residence, education, cohort (year of diagnosis) and comorbidity at index date (CCI, diabetes or CVD (CVD at index date was defined by either CVD drug prescriptions in NPDR (model 1) or CVD diagnoses in NPR (model 2)). Comorbidity at index date was associated with an increased risk of CVD during the follow-up period no matter whether comorbidity was measured by CCI, diabetes or CVD
