CDC Launches Diabetes State Burden Toolkit
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released a new Diabetes State Burden Toolkit with state-specific data. The toolkit breaks the burden of diabetes down into three categories: health burden, economic burden, and mortality. Based on 2013 data, for example, the toolkit shows a cost of $19,410 per person aged 19-64 with diabetes in California.
The toolkit is available on the CDC website.
