To the Editor: In the last column of Table 1 of our recent publication in Diabetologia [1], we stated cause of death as ‘not available’ for a number of cases we studied. We wish to advise that this missing information can be accessed through the Network for Pancreatic Organ Donors with Diabetes (nPOD) website. Referring to the details on the website, the cause of death for the cases in Table 1 is herewith updated:

Anoxia: Cases 6178, 6134, 6070, 6046, 6089 (with acute pancreatitis), 6049 (with moderate pancreatitis and diabetic ketoacidosis), 6171 (with very mild pancreatitis)

Head trauma: Cases 6123, 6167, 6162, 6113 (changed from ‘anoxia’), 6045, 6039, 6197 (with mild multifocal chronic pancreatitis), 6158 (mild focal chronic pancreatitis), 6087 (without secondary complications or pancreatitis)

Cerebral oedema: Case 6052 (diabetic ketoacidosis)

Cerebrovascular/stroke: Case 6172
