A prospective study of occupational status and disability retirement among employees with diabetes in Denmark

Tidsskriftartikel - 2015

Resume

The aim of this study was to examine the extent and distribution of disability retirement among people with diabetes in the workforce. Using four population registries, the study examined the relative rates of disability retirement among employees in Denmark over a 10-year period. The findings highlight that the risk of disability retirement increases as occupational status decreases. With an ageing workforce and increasing prevalence of diabetes, it is important to target primary, secondary and tertiary prevention to the groups that need it most in attempts to prolong the working lives of individuals
