  • Abstract

OBJECTIVE-To determine the association of baseline cardiorespi-ratory fitness to all-cause mortality across the range of blood glucose levels.

RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS-Data from a prospective study of 8715 men (average age 42 yr), followed for an average of 8.2 yr (range 1-15 yr), were analyzed. Cardiorespiratory fitness was assessed by maximal-exercise treadmill testing. Men with evidence of clinical vascular disease or who did not achieve 85% of their age-predicted maximum heart rate during exercise testing were excluded from analyses.
