Researchers found what they termed a "non-significant increase in mortality over time," among patients with prediabetes and diabetes, even as death rates for those without the conditions dropped. The study compared two groups of patients, one from 1988 to 1994, the other from 1999 to 2002. The mortality rate of patients with prediabetes grew from 11.19 to 14.02 deaths per 1,000 person-years, while the rate among diabetes patients grew from 20.34 to 20.82, according to a study in Population Health Metrics. Death rates among people without either condition fell over the same period, from 7.81 to 6.04.
