Hospital Discharge Rates for Ulcer/Inflammation/Infection (ULCER) as First-Listed Diagnosis per 1,000 Diabetic Population, by Age, United States, 1988–2007

From 1988–2007, hospital discharge rates for ULCER as first-listed diagnosis per 1,000 diabetic population did not show any change for people younger than 45 years but decreased for people older. Hospital discharge rates were highest among people aged 75 years or older and lowest among people younger than 45 years; however the rate difference between these two age groups decreased throughout the period. In 2007, the discharge rate for ULCER as first-listed diagnosis among people aged 75 years or older was about 1.6 times that of people younger than 45 years (8.7 vs. 5.2 per 1,000 diabetic population).
