Metformin treatment is associated with a low risk of mortality in diabetic patients with heart failure: a retrospective nationwide cohort study

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningfagfællebedømt

We investigated the risk of all-cause mortality associated with individual glucose-lowering treatment regimens used in current clinical practice in Denmark.
