From: Management of diabetes mellitus and associated cardiovascular risk factors in Brazil – the Brazilian study on the practice of diabetes care

  Diabetes
Type 1 (N=375) Type 2 (N=983)
Blood pressure <130/80 mm Hg 162 (43.3) 162 (16.7)
Glycated hemoglobin <7% 77 (22.1) 379 (43.2)
LDL-cholesterol <100 mg/dL 138 (36.8) 420 (42.7)
TGC <150 mg/dL 248 (66.1) 507 (51.5)
HDL-cholesterol (≥40 mg/dL, males)* 81 (77.9) 218 (56.0)
HDL-cholesterol (≥50 mg/dL, females)* 129 (75.0) 218 (47.4)
Waist circumference (<90 cm, males)* 98 (70) 76 (17.4)
Waist circumference (<80 cm, females)* 123 (54.2) 70 (13.2)
BMI <25 kg/m2 261 (69.2) 218 (22.1)
Non-smokers 305 (82.9) 678 (71.7)
Adequate control of at least 5 risk factors 134 (35.7) 142 (14.4)
  1. Numbers in brackets mean percentage of an absolute number.
  2. TGC tryglicerides, BMI body mass index.
  3. * To calculate the proportion of individuals with normal waist circumference and HDL-cholesterol among type 1 and 2 DM individuals according to sex, we used the total number of females or males present in each group on the denominator.
