Deaths Among People With Diagnosed Diabetes (Mortality)
Adults aged 20 years and older
- Overall, death rates were twice as high among adults aged 20 years and older with diabetes compared to individuals without diabetes.
- Individuals with diabetes die at rates that are 4 to 10 times higher among younger adults aged 20 to 44, 2 to 3 times higher among adults aged 45 to 79. (Figure 6)
- Diagnosed diabetes shortens life expectancy for all ages. (Figure 7) For example, both men and women in the 25 to 39 year age groups with diagnosed diabetes had about a 9 year reduction in life expectancy in 2004-2005.
