  • Data are RRs (95% CI). Men without diabetes are the reference group.

  • *

    * Adjusted for age, marital status, current smoking status, comorbid conditions (heart disease, hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, stroke, prostate cancer, and other cancers), alcohol use, obesity (BMI), physical activity, and missing independent variables.
