Abstract

Purpose - Non-insulin-dependent diabetes may become a public health problem in the next decade, given the increasing life expectancy of populations and because the baby-boom generation will reach the age at risk. Moreover a modification of the diagnostic criteria may increase the number of diabeticpatients. We studied the evolution of diabetes prevalence. Methods - A non-specific household survey, performed every 10 years was used, Patients who bought an oral antidiabetic drug during these studies wereclassified as diabetics. Results - In 1980-81 and 1991-92 the crude diabetes prevalences were not significantly different even if there was a trend to increase (1.27% and 1.41%, respectively). When the 1980-81 prevalence was standardized to the age distribution of the 1991-92 sample, the trend disappeared (prevalence 1980-81:1.35%). Conclusion - There was no increase in an individual's risk of diabetes, However the crude prevalence tended to increase because of the changing age structure of the population. On-going studies are needed to follow the prevalence of diabetes during the next decade, Copyright (C) 1999 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
