  1. Economic impact of diabetes mellitus in the elderly.

    Article - En anglais

    Diabetes mellitus, a disease prevalent in Americans of 65 or more years of age, leads to significant morbidity, mortality, and use of health-care services.

    Among elderly individuals, per-capita expenditures for medical care are 50 ; higher for people with diabetes.

    Estimates suggest that health care of elderly diabetic patients costs 85.16 billion annually, nearly 80 ; of which is hospital expenses.

    Intensifying outpatient care of patients with diabetes may both reduce costs and prevent or delay the incidence of morbidity leading to hospitalization.
