Incidence of Diabetes

You are not alone.

The numbers from the National Institute of Health (NIH-2011) are staggering. Almost one in every four of the population over age 60 has diabetes.

  • 2007 to 2009 national survey data for people ages 20 years or older indicate that 11.8 percent of Hispanics had diagnosed diabetes.
  • 2007 to 2009 national survey data for people ages 20 years or older indicate that 12.6 percent of non-Hispanic blacks had diagnosed diabetes.
  • 2007 to 2009 national survey data for people ages 20 years or older indicate that 8.4 percent of Asian Americans had diagnosed diabetes.

New Cases of Diagnosed Diabetes among People Younger than 20 Years of Age, United States, 2002-2005

"SEARCH for Diabetes in Youth is a multicenter study funded by the CDC and the NIH to examine diabetes type 1 and type 2 among children and adolescents in the United States. SEARCH findings for the communities studied include the following:

During 2002 and 2005, 15,600 youth were newly diagnosed with type 1 diabetes annually, and 3,600 youth were newly diagnosed with type 2 diabetes annually.

Among youth ages younger than 10 years, the rate of new cases was 19.7 per 100,000 each year for type 1 diabetes and 0.4 per 100,000 for type 2 diabetes. Among youth ages 10 years or older, the rate of new cases was 18.6 per 100,000 each year for type 1 diabetes and 8.5 per 100,000 for type 2 diabetes.

Non-Hispanic white youth had the highest rate of new cases of type 1 diabetes - 24.8 per 100,000 per year among those younger than 10 years and 22.6 per 100,000 per year among those ages 10-19 years.

Type 2 diabetes was extremely rare among youth ages younger than 10 years. While still infrequent, rates were greater among youth ages 10-19 years than in younger children, with higher rates among U.S. minority populations than in non-Hispanic whites.

Among non-Hispanic white youth ages 10-19 years, the rate of new cases was higher for type 1 than for type 2 diabetes. For Asian/Pacific Islander Americans and American Indian youth ages 10-19 years, the opposite was true the rate of new cases was greater for type 2 than for type 1 diabetes. Among non-Hispanic black and Hispanic/Latino youth ages 10-19 years, the rates of new cases of type 1 and type 2 diabetes were similar."
