This article presents a study which reveals that the incidence of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) in patients with type 1 diabetes was 7.8% at 30 years after diagnosis. During 346 851 person-years of follow-up, 632 patients developed ESRD and 1417 patients died. The cumulative incidences of ESRD were 2.2% after 20 years and 7.8% after 30 years; risks were similar in men and women and those diagnosed since 1980. Cumulative mortality was 6.8% after 20 years and 15% after 30 years. Risk for death was higher in patients who had developed ESRD than in those who had not. Risk for death was higher in men than in women, increased with age at diagnosis, and decreased with recency of diagnosis.
