FIMMG_obs Dataset

The FIMMG_obs dataset is a subset of the FIMMG dataset, because not all the patients and the EHR fields have been selected for this study.
The FIMMG_obs dataset contains a total of 968 patients and 3 main EHR fields.

All the type 2 diabetes patients were excluded from the FIMMG_obs dataset.

The number of different features for each main field is enclosed in square brackets:

  • Demographic (Gender, Age) [2]
  • Monitoring (Systolic and diastolic blood pressure, Height, Weight, BMI) [5]
  • Clinical (Laboratory exams) [73]

The date of each laboratory exam and blood pressure measurement is reported for each patient. This aspect assumes a relevant significance, because it allows to trace up the patient’s longitudinal clinical history from 2010 to 2018, by collecting a total of 2276 observations in accordance with the triglyceride-glucose (TyG) index measurements for each patient.
