May you share a list of chronic diseases and an estimated reduced risk of a poor outcome (heart attack, stroke, peripheral neuropathy, blindness, kidney failure, liver failure, death, etc.) from untreated to treated condition. I think an estimated number will give some patients an objective incentive to increase adherence. Please share if you have any estimates for any chronic or mental health conditions. Thank you. [Risk = relative risk, absolute risk, relative risk reduction, or absolute risk reduction]

You're looking for number needed to treat. For cardiology conditions (heart failure, cad) there are tons of data. Look up nnt on Google and you'll find a lot of this
