Death Rates for Hyperglycemic Crises as Underlying Cause per 100,000 Diabetic Population, By Age, United States, 1980–2009

From 1980 to 2009, death rates per 100,000 diabetic population for hyperglycemic crises as underlying cause of death declined in all age groups, with the largest decreases occurring among those aged 75 years and older. Although the oldest age group had the highest death rates near the beginning of the study time period, these rates steadily declined and eventually became even lower than the rates of the youngest age group.
