What does this indicator measure?

Diabetes mortality is represented by the number of deaths per 100,000 people and is age-adjusted to the 2000 U.S. population. It includes ICD-10 codes: E10–E14.

Why is this indicator important?

Diabetes is a group of diseases resulting in high levels of blood glucose (form of sugar) due to defects in insulin production, action, or both. It can lead to serious complications and premature death. People who have diabetes can work with health care providers and support systems to take action, control the disease, and lower their risk for complications. Typically, diabetes is preventable if people incorporate health eating and exercise habits into their daily routines.
