Cost of Diabetes Care in U.S. Keeps Climbing
Date:3/6/2013

WEDNESDAY, March 6 (HealthDay News) -- The total cost of diabetes in the United States jumped from $174 billion in 2007 to $245 billion in 2012, a new report shows.

Last year's total cost included $176 billion in direct medical costs -- such as hospital and emergency care, medications and office visits -- and $69 billion in indirect costs, including work absenteeism, reduced productivity, unemployment caused by diabetes-related disability and lost productivity due to early death.

These numbers are alarming, and further highlight the need for our nation to address this epidemic."

"The cost of diabetes is rising at a rate higher than overall medical costs, with more than one in 10 health care dollars in the country being spent directly on diabetes and its complications, and more than one in five health care dollars in the U.S. going to the care of people with diagnosed diabetes," Ratner noted.

The study also found that medical costs for peo
