Survey Reveals Significant Public Lack of Diabetes Awareness

those polled did not know the difference between type 1 and type 2 diabetes

-- 67 percent of the population mistakenly believed there is a cure for type 1 diabetes

-- Only 51 percent knew that there were two types of diabetes

Survey Methodology

This survey was conducted online within the United States by Harris Interactive(R) on behalf of Medtronic between March 7 and 9, 2007, via its QuickQuery(SM) online omnibus service, among 2,436 U.S. adults aged 18 years and older. Figures for region, age within gender, education, household income, race/ethnicity were weighted where necessary to bring them into line with their actual proportions in the population. Propensity score weighting was also used to adjust for respondents' propensity to be online.

With a pure probability sample of 2,436 one could say with a ninety-five percent probability that the overall results would have a sampling error of +/- 3 percentage points. Sampling error for data based on sub-samples would be higher and would vary. However, that does not take other sources of error into account. This online survey is not based on a probability sample and therefore no theoretical sampling error can be calculated.

Diabetes Statistics

-- According to the American Diabetes Association, almost 21 million Americans (seven percent of the population) have diabetes.(1)

-- More than one million patients in the US have type 1 diabetes, often referred to as juvenile diabetes.(2)

-- Diabetes is the fifth-deadliest disease in the United States,(3) and costs the United States more than $132 billion in direct and indirect costs.(4)

-- About 28 percent of diabetes patients use insulin to control their disease.(5) That means almost six million Americans require insulin to manage their diabetes.
