Type 2 Diabetes Control Worsening, According To Study Of Patients On Commercial Insurance
Date:5/22/2013

for at least one year, and were taking medications for the treatment of diabetes. For those who had A1C readings available, 48.2 percent had an A1C level of less than 7 percent – a marker of good diabetes control -- in 2008. By 2011, that figure fell to 44.5 percent. Those with A1C levels in excess of 9 percent jumped from 15.3 to 17.7 percent over the same period.

The second study assessed the economic impact of A1C changes, using a combination of administrative claims from the HIRD and cost data from previously published literature. Multiple scenarios were estimated, which suggested broad cost savings at the health plan level. For example, if half of the patients with an A1C greater than 9 percent had modest improvements in diabetes control (reduction in A1C of >/= 1 percent), the estimated cost savings at the health plan level over a one-year timeframe could be in excess of $50 million across all patients in the health plans investigated in the study.

"At the health plan level, these data suggest that most patients do not have adequate diabetes control and the cost savings from even modestly better glycemic control can be very substantial, making concerted efforts to improve patient outcomes a win-win proposition for all," said Dr. Nguyen.

About Diabetes

In order to fuel the human body's cells with glucose, or sugar, insulin is required. While the body continuously produces insulin, people with Type 2 diabetes, the most common form of diabetes, either do not produce enough insulin, or their bodies cannot use the insulin adequately. When there is not enough, or insulin is not used properly, glucose builds up in the blood instead of going into the body's cells. If not controlled properly, diabetes can increase the risk of heart disease, blindness, amputations, stroke, and high blood pressure.

The number of patients diagnosed with diabetes in the United States is alarming and continues to grow.
