Welcome to the QDiabetes®(Heart failure)-2015 risk calculator

Welcome to the QDiabetes®(Heart failure)-2015 Web Calculator. You can use this calculator to work out your risk of developing heart failure by answering some simple questions.

The QDiabetes®(Heart failure)-2015 algorithms have been developed by Julia Hippisley-Cox and Carol Coupland and are based on routinely collected data from many thousands of GPs across the country who have freely contributed data to the QResearch database for medical research.

QDiabetes®(Heart failure)-2015 has been developed for the UK population, and is intended for use in the UK. All medical decisions need to be taken by a patient in consultation with their doctor. The authors and the sponsors accept no responsibility for clinical use or misuse of this score.

The science underpinning the new QDiabetes®(Heart failure)-2015 equations will be published in due course.
