Diabetes type 2 is one of the main health problems in industrialized countries. As a risk factor for cardiovascular diseases, a risk profile of patients at diagnosis is essential in secondary prevention, therapy and prognosis.

In 4 years, since 2000 to 2003,781 cases of diabetes type 2 have been notified to the Castilla y León Sentinel network 420 males and 359 females aged 15 years and over.
