Traduction en anglais : Cost of illness study of diabetes mellitus.
In a cost of illness study on the basis of data of a representative random sample of members of a Local Statuary Health Insurance (Allgemeine Orts-krankenkasse, AOK) treatment with anti-diabetics and the treatment controls in 1990 were recorded.
The costs according to the type of diabetes treatment in 1990 were determined and compared with the estimated costs for treatment and therapy control corresponding to international standards.
The random sample corresponds to the required standards in health economics of a population-related random sample, which is continually observed in the course of at least one year.
The costs per diabetic patient were checked, as well as the costs which were shared by the insured community per 1,000 insured people for the treatment of their members affected with diabetes.
Among 1,000 insured members there were 49 diabetes patients (standardised according to the age and sex distribution of the former West Germany).
Of these 49 patients, 9 were insulin recipients, 25 were recipients of oral anti-diabetics, and 15 were diet-treated patients.
Total costs amounted to DM 16,896/1,000 insured/year.
Of this total, DM 12,905 were accounted for by drug therapy and DM 3,991 by the therapy control.
The estimates for a therapy corresponding to international standards in comparison to the applied therapy showed that a therapy following the recommendations would be 54% more expensive and therefore rise to DM 26,023/1,000 insured/year. (...)
