Diabetes Res Clin Pract. 2012 May;96(2):e18-22. doi: 10.1016/j.diabres.2012.01.003. Epub 2012 Jan 31.


Life expectancy (LE) among the Japanese population with or without diabetes mellitus was estimated. LE in 40-year old men and women was 41.1 and 47.5 years in those without diabetes and 32.3 and 40.9 years in those with diabetes. The LE of 40-year old men and women with diabetes was 8.8 and 6.6 years shorter than in those without diabetes. Diabetes mellitus leads to a decrease in LE. The presence of impaired glucose tolerance also affected LE inversely.
