Age-Adjusted Hospital Discharge Rates for Nontraumatic Lower Extremity Amputation per 1,000 Diabetic Population, by Race, United States, 1988–2009

From 1988 to 2009, the age-adjusted hospital discharge rate for nontraumatic lower extremity amputation per 1,000 diabetic population was higher among blacks than among whites. The rates among blacks decreased throughout the study period, and the rates among whites decreased beginning in 1999. In 2009, the age-adjusted rate among blacks was about twice the rate among whites (4.5 vs 2.3 per 1,000 diabetic population).
