All-cause mortality, diagnosed hypertension and diabetes: Report from the Canadian Chronic Disease Surveillance System: Hypertension in Canada, 2010

All-Cause Mortality among Adults with Diagnosed Hypertension and Diabetes in 2006/07Footnote 1

  • Age-standardized all-cause mortality rates were about 2 times higher for adults with both diagnosed hypertension and diabetes compared to adults with diagnosed hypertension only (Figure 13).
  • Age-standardized all-cause mortality rates were about 1.4 times higher for adults with both diagnosed diabetes and hypertension compared to individuals with diagnosed diabetes only (Figure 13).
  • The age-standardized all-cause mortality rate among adults with diagnosed diabetes was higher than among those with diagnosed hypertension (Figure 13).
  • The number of adults dying (all causes) with both diagnosed hypertension and diabetes increased from 29,967 or 14.5% in 2000/01 to 50,741 or 22.8% in 2006/07. This reflects the increase in prevalence of both conditions (Figure 14).Footnote 2

Text Equivalent - Figure 13

Age-standardized all-cause mortality rates among people aged 20 years and older with or without diabetes and/or hypertension, by sex, are presented in Figure 13 for the year 2006/07. Note that data for Nunavut and Québec were unavailable and rates were standardized to the 1991 Canadian population.

Age-standardized all-cause mortality rates were about 2 times higher for adults with both diagnosed hypertension and diabetes compared to adults with diagnosed hypertension only. Age-standardized all-cause mortality rates were about 1.4 times higher for adults with both diagnosed diabetes and hypertension compared to individuals with diagnosed diabetes only. The age-standardized all-cause mortality rate among adults with diagnosed diabetes was higher than among those with diagnosed hypertension.

The number and percent of prevalent cases of diabetes and/or hypertension among people aged 20 years and older who died (all causes), from 2001/01 to 2006/07, are presented in Figure 14. Note that data for Nunavut and Québec were unavailable. However, for this analysis, the number of cases for Québec was estimated by applying the Canadian age-specific rates of diagnosed hypertension weighted to the Québec population.

The number of adults dying (all causes) with both diagnosed hypertension and diabetes increased from 29,967 or 14.5% in 2000/01 to 50,741 or 22.8% in 2006/07. For additional information, refer to the last paragraph on page 17.
