Cumulative incidence functions for time to intensification following a high HbA1c value. This figure shows estimated cumulative incidence functions derived from the Cox regression cause-specific hazards (adjusted for confounders at their sample mean values) for time to intensification following a high HbA1c value. Estimates are presented by Mental Health Condition status, within each of three time intervals (0–14 days, 15–30 days, 31–180 days), for the analytic cohort of diabetic patients (n =52,526). The 31–180 day cumulative incidence function is structured as a competing events analysis, with HbA1c <8.0 as a competing event. Each estimated cumulative incidence function gives the estimated cumulative probability of experiencing a particular event type (e.g., intensification) first up to that point in time. These cumulative probabilities do not reach 1 at the end of each time period (right side of each graph) due to right censoring and, during the period of 31 to 180 days, due to the concurrent accumulation of incidences of the competing event.
