Abstract

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.
