Although the medical expenditures for the treatment of acute glycemic and chronic complications of diabetes are well documented, little is known about the costs of treating general medical conditions among persons with diabetes. Accordingly, data from the 1991 National Hospital Discharge Survey and the 1987 National Medical Expenditure Survey were used to estimate the risk of hospitalization for general medical conditions among middle-aged (45-64 yr) and elderly (> or = 65 yr) persons with…

Hospitalization for general medical conditions among diabetic patients in Israel.
TLDR
Hospital expenditures for diabetic people increase with patient age and represent one-fifth of the total health insurance expenditure for the middle-aged and elderly population in Israel.
Economic Consequences of Diabetes Mellitus in the U.S. in 1997
TLDR
The economic burden of diabetes mellitus in the U.S. is enormous and medical innovations that can delay the onset and slow the progression of diabetes have tremendous potential to mitigate the associated clinical and cost repercussions.
Common reasons for hospitalization among adult patients with diabetes.
TLDR
Diseases of the circulatory system were the most common diagnoses in hospital discharge data for adult patients with diabetes in Georgia, and outpatient treatment of diabetes should focus on prevention of cardiovascular diseases to avoid hospitalizations.
Hospital discharge records under-report the prevalence of diabetes in inpatients.
Age and sex differences in hospitalizations associated with diabetes.
TLDR
Large increases in diabetes hospitalizations occurring among adults aged 30-39 years and young women signal a shift in the hospital burden of diabetes.

TLDR
The creation of clearly defined standards and targets for inpatient management of hyperglycemia and metabolic control seems important for improvement of outcomes in hospitalized patients with diabetes.
Excess hospitalizations, hospital days, and inpatient costs among people with diabetes in Andalusia, Spain.
TLDR
The costs arising from hospitalization of individuals with diabetes are disproportionate in relation to their prevalence for those aged >or=45 years, cardiovascular complications were clearly the most important factor determining increased costs from diabetes.

Health care expenditures for people with diabetes mellitus, 1992.
TLDR
It is found that health care expenditures for people with diabetes constituted about one in seven health care dollars spent in 1992, and health care reform and insurers should take note of these findings and structure benefit packages to promote care likely to reduce the costs of caring for diabetics.
Relative risk and economic consequences of inpatient care among patients with renal failure.
TLDR
Age-adjusted relative risk calculations indicate that patients with renal failure experience greater inpatient morbidity compared with other populations with chronic, progressive diseases and the economic consequences of inpatient care for the treatment of renal failure were enormous.
The economic costs of non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus.
TLDR
The economic costs of type II, or non-insulin-dependent, diabetes mellitus is estimated, reflecting its contribution to the total burden of disease in the United States and understated the cost to the nation due to this disease.
Hospital Use Among Diabetic Patients and the General Population
TLDR
Diabetic patients used many more hospital inpatient days than did the nondiabetic population for a number of other disease categories that are usually not related to diabetes, mainly because of cardiovascular and microvascular complications, but also because of diseases unrelated to diabetes.
Health-Insurance Coverage for Adults With Diabetes in the U. S. Population
TLDR
Almost all patients with diabetes who are ≥65 years of age have health-care coverage, but 13.5% of those 18–64 years ofAge have no health insurance, which indicates a significant societal burden associated with diabetes.
The health care status of the diabetic population as reflected by physician claims to a major insurer.
TLDR
It is found that diabetic patients have neither an elevated risk for a wide spectrum of diseases nor an increase in the receipt of physician services for diagnostic categories without increased risk, despite more frequent physician encounters.
An economic evaluation of asthma in the United States.
TLDR
The distribution of health care resources used for asthma in the United States was studied in order to lay the groundwork for further policy decisions aimed at reducing the economic burden of this disorder.
Use of Hospital Services by Elderly Diabetics: The Frederica Study of Diabetic and Fasting Hyperglycaemic Patients Aged 60–74 Years
TLDR
The use of hospital services was studied in 228 patients with known diabetes (KD) and subjects with fasting hyperglycaemia found by screening of a well‐defined population aged 60–74 years, ninety per cent were NIDDM as evaluated by a high C‐peptide response on glucagon stimulation.
Bacteremia in Diabetic Patients: Comparison of Incidence and Mortality with Nondiabetic Patients
TLDR
The frequent occurrence of bacteremia among patients with diabetes mellitus represents a significant problem and diabetic patients in this population were nearly twice as likely to die as a result of b acteremia compared with nondiabetic patients.
Incidence of Diabetic Retinopathy and Blindness: A Population-based Study in Rochester, Minnesota
TLDR
Among the 1135 Rochester residents discovered to have diabetes in the period 1945–69, the prevalence of retinopathy was 2.6% at the time of initial diagnosis and the subsequent incidence was 17.4 per 1000 person-years, and the epidemiologic patterns for proliferative Retinopathy were qualitatively similar to those for nonproliferativeretinopathy.
