Figure 2

The absolute risk on a chronic disease accumulated for the categories no. 1 or 2 and 3 or more diseases. When no bar is presented, the risk for developing a new chronic disease is 0%. Absence of the other two categories means no additional risk with respect to the previous category. For example: a 60-year old male with no additional chronic disease has 2% risk to develop anemia. A 60-year old male with one or two chronic diseases at IA onset has also 2% risk to develop anemia -no additional bar for one or two chronic diseases is presented-. A 60-year old male with three or more chronic diseases at IA onset has 3% risk to develop anemia.
