First of its Kind National Report Reveals Estimated High Prevalence and Heavy Cost of Type 2 Diabetes Complications in America
In Response, Health Organizations Unite to Help Educate on Good Diabetes Management and How to Reduce the Risk of Other Serious Health Problems
A first of its kind report looking at the prevalence and cost of type 2 diabetes complications shows that an estimated three out of five people (57.9 percent) with type 2 diabetes have at least one of the other serious health problems commonly associated with the disease, and that these health problems are taking a heavy financial toll on the United States. In 2006, the nation spent an estimated $22.9 billion on direct medical costs related to diabetes complications.
The new report, titled State of Diabetes Complications in America, also shows that estimated annual healthcare costs for a person with type 2 diabetes complications are about three times higher than that of the average American without diagnosed diabetes. These complications, which can include heart disease, stroke, eye damage, chronic kidney disease and foot problems that can lead to amputations, cost a person with type 2 diabetes almost $10,000 each year. People with diabetes complications pay nearly $1,600 out of their own pockets for costs that are not reimbursed by insurance, such as co-payments and deductibles. This amount is significant, considering that according to the National Health Interview Survey, an estimated 40 percent of adults with diabetes reported a family income of less than $35,000 per year in 2005.
Results from the report were released today at the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE) 16th Annual Meeting and Clinical Congress, by AACE in partnership with the members of a diabetes complications consortium: the Amputee Coalition of America, Mended Hearts, the National Federation of the Blind and the National Kidney Foundation, and supported by GlaxoSmithKline.
The State of Diabetes Complications in America is an analysis of national health and economic data specific to type 2 diabetes complications, and was developed as a follow-up to a 2005 AACE study showing that two out of three Americans with type 2 diabetes analyzed in a study had elevated blood sugar levels, which can lead to diabetes complications.
Many people with type 2 diabetes develop more than one health complication associated with the disease. The new report shows that an estimated one out of three people (33.3 percent) with the disease has one other serious health problem; one out of ten people (10.3 percent) with the disease has two other serious health problems; one out of 15 people (6.7 percent) with the disease has three other serious health problems; one out of 13 people (7.6 percent) has four or more other serious health problems.
The report makes it clear that we have a major national issue when it comes to diabetes management, and that urgent action is needed, said Daniel Einhorn, MD, FACE, and Secretary of the Board of Directors of AACE. People with type 2 diabetes need to achieve and maintain good blood glucose levels over time to improve their chances of reducing the risk of these serious complications.
The State of Diabetes Complications in America report synthesizes data from two large national studies to examine the issue of diabetes related complications in the United States. Data on the prevalence of diabetes related complications were derived from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) and combined with economic data from the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey (MEPS).
This is a spoof on how Proton should do their ads. We're helping Proton to save up on advertisement expenditure by NOT paying Godzilla and NOT coming up with nonsensical, retarded commercials. This commercial spoof made by Terato Dot Com shows how Proton cars are viewed by the majority of Malaysians. Thanks to the improved ride and handling by Lotus, this GTi is a gem. Well, almost...

Kellogg Company (NYSE: K) today announced that it is expanding its W.K. Kellogg Institute for Food and Nutrition Research (WKKI) located in Battle Creek, Mich., to continue to meet business needs and to achieve continued growth. The 157,000-square-foot pilot plant and office space addition will expand Kellogg Company's existing global center for research and innovation activities. The $40 million expansion and $14 million investment in pilot plant equipment (over the next 10 years) falls within Kellogg Company's previously reported capital expenditure guidance.
Since the WKKI facility opened in 1997, Kellogg Company's net sales have doubled from $6 billion to almost $12 billion, and net sales from innovation have also almost doubled. In addition, numerous process capabilities have been added to WKKI as the company extended its business into new categories, and the number of employees in the facility almost doubled to support these new technologies and the company's growth.
The WKKI expansion will enable Kellogg to continue to fuel top-line growth through additional pilot plant space, enhanced process scalability and additional space for a flexible team environment and total technical community. The addition will also ensure WKKI continues to be a "best in class" facility, allowing the company to continue to successfully retain and recruit world-class research and development talent.
To say that healthcare is the lifeblood of a society is an understatement in many respects. The sheer costs associated with keeping the U.S. healthy defy imagination: national health expenditures reached $2 trillion in 2005, the latest year for which government statistics are available, and they are projected to double by 2015, reaching 20% of the gross domestic product
