Risk of affective disorder (AD) with sequential exclusion of its incidence for up to 3 years. Hazard ratios (HRs) for incident ADs by date of diabetes diagnosis and type of diabetes treatment, with sequential exclusion of its incidence for up to 3 years. HRs with 95% confidence intervals (CIs) are shown. In the models used, subjects were matched by date of diagnosis (within the same calendar year), age group (50 to 54, 55 to 59, 60 to 64, 65 to 69, and ≥70 years), locality, level of care, and comorbidity index, and were adjusted for monthly income (0, 1 to 15,000, 15,000 to 21000, >21000 New Taiwan Dollars (NTD)). The upper CIs are, respectively, 17.6, 28.8, and 28.8, but bar lengths have been omitted in the figure because of scale.
