Adjusted relative risks (RR) and 95% confidence intervals (CI) of 28 day mortality after myocardial infarction for patients with previous diagnosis of diabetes, admission glycaemia >6.67 mmol/l, and mean glycaemia >6.67 mmol/l, in the REGICOR Study (Gerona, Spain, 1993–96)

Adjusted RR (95% CI)
Model 1Model 2Model 3
Model 1 adjusted for age, sex, smoking, and thrombolytic treatment (A, B, and C). Model 2 adjusted as model 1 and for history of heart failure, occurrence of cardiogenic shock or acute pulmonary oedema during admission (A, B, and C), and for the presence of severe arrhythmias (ventricular fibrillation or ventricular tachycardia requiring immediate medical intervention) during first 72 hours of hospital stay (B and C). Model 3 adjusted as model 2 and for previous diagnosis of diabetes (B and C).
