Cardiometabolic multimorbidity is an increasing burden in Western countries. Diabetes mellitus, stroke, and ischemic heart disease (IHD) are the prevailing conditions, and each has a high mortality risk. Information on diabetes mellitus, stroke, and IHD was entered into the multivariable logistic model together age, sex, and severity of illness (computed using the Cumulative Illness Rating Scale).In an elderly inpatient population, logistic analysis indicated that diabetes mellitus, IHD, and stroke were not independent predictors of in-hospital and or 3-month mortality. Only stroke had an independent association with mortality at 1- year follow-up. Age, sex, and severity index were strong predictors of mortality, excluding male sex, which was not associated with in-hospital mortality.
