This report, Report 2a, from the National Diabetes Audit (NDA) covers complications of diabetes. It does not include diabetic eye disease or hypoglycaemia because presently there are no reliable records of these that the NDA can access. Most other cardiovascular and diabetes specific complications are included.

An accompanying Report 2b: Complications and Mortality starts to investigate the associations between disease outcomes and preceding care.
