Abstract

In 6002 Australian adults with type 2 diabetes and a median 5-year follow-up in the FIELD (Fenofibrate Intervention and Event Lowering in Diabetes) trial, baseline socioeconomic status (SES) and self-reported education level were not related to development of on-trial sight-threatening diabetic retinopathy. Similarly, in a retinal photography substudy (n = 549), two-step diabetic retinopathy progression was not related to SES or education.
