The Burden of Diabetes

Trends from the Most Recent CDC Data

Since 1980, diabetes prevalence has increased from 3.5% to nearly 10% of American adults. Ironically, much of this increase is driven by a public health success story: the disease is not as deadly as it once was, so diabetics are living much longer, driving up overall prevalence—and costs. 

This report includes local data on diabetes prevalence and mortality, along with statistics focused on the elderly population.
