Health Status Outcomes for Diabetes Prevalence

Health Status Outcomes

Diabetes can have serious consequences. It is the leading cause of non-traumatic lower extremity amputations and blindness among working-age adults. It is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease and end-stage renal disease. Diabetes can affect both physical and mental health. Complications from diabetes can have a significant impact on quality of life. Blindness and amputations affect one's independence and ability to conduct everyday activities. People with diabetes have an increased risk of depression. Rates of depression among people with diabetes have been found to be as high as 20%, compared to 5 to 10% in the general population.^10^
