The initial purpose of the study is to investigate the effects of a multifactorial, intensified treatment on cardiovascular mortality and morbidity in a randomized design. After finishing the trial in 2009, the cohort will be followed up with an investigation into different aspects of the ‘diabetes career’ of screen-detected diabetes patients. In 2014 the 10 years follow-up data is collected.
