Age-Adjusted Percentage of Adults with Diabetes Using Any Diabetes Medication, by Sex, United States, 1997–2011

The age-adjusted percentage of adults aged 18 years or older with diagnosed diabetes reporting any diabetes medication use (pills, insulin, or both) showed no consistent trend from 1997 to 2011 for females, and showed little or no change until 2008 and then increased afterwards for males. During this period, the age-adjusted percentage was higher among males than females; however, the difference by sex declined over time. In 2011, the age-adjusted percentage was 83.7% among males and 78.3% among females.
