OBJECTIVE Guidelines on the standard care of diabetes recommend that glycemic treatment goals for older adults consider the patient’s complications and life expectancy. In this study, we examined the influence of diabetes complications and associated life expectancies on the cost-effectiveness (CE) of HbA1c treatment goals. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS We used data from the 2011–2016 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) to generate nationally representative subgroups of older...

The Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet lowers blood pressure, an important risk factor for chronic kidney disease (CKD) and end-stage renal disease (ESRD). However, it is unclear whether adherence to a DASH diet confers protection against future ESRD, especially among those with pre-existing CKD and hypertension. We examined whether a DASH diet is associated with lower risk of ESRD among 1,110 adults aged ≥ 20 years with hypertension and CKD (estimated glomerular filtration rate...

Importance Coordinated efforts by national organizations in the United States to implement evidence-based lifestyle modification programs are under way to reduce type 2 diabetes (hereinafter referred to as diabetes) and cardiovascular risks. Objective To provide a status report on the reach and use of diabetes prevention services nationally. Design, Setting, and Participants This nationally representative, population-based cross-sectional analysis of 2016 and 2017 National Health Interview Surve...

OBJECTIVES To determine whether declining trends in lower extremity amputations have continued into the current decade. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS We calculated hospitalization rates for nontraumatic lower extremity amputation (NLEA) for the years 2000–2015 using nationally representative, serial cross-sectional data from the Nationwide Inpatient Sample on NLEA procedures and from the National Health Interview Survey for estimates of the populations with and without diabetes. RESULTS Age-adjust...

In the United States, diabetes has increased rapidly, exceeding prior predictions. Projections of the future diabetes burden need to reflect changes in incidence, mortality, and demographics. We applied the most recent data available to develop an updated projection through 2060. A dynamic Markov model was used to project prevalence of diagnosed diabetes among US adults by age, sex, and race (white, black, other). Incidence and current prevalence were from the National Health Interview Survey (N...

The American Diabetes Association (ADA) recommends glycemic management goals for older diabetes patients take into account the complexity of complications. Little information is available on how cost-effectiveness (CE) of glycemic control goals relates to a patient’s level of complications. We examined the CE of intensive glycemic control (A1c Disclosure H. Shao: None. D.B. Rolka: None. E.W. Gregg: None. P. Zhang: None.

Introduction: The new 2017 American College of Cardiology (ACC) and American Heart Association (AHA) hypertension guideline defines hypertension as either systolic blood pressure (SBP) > 130 mmHg or diastolic blood pressure (DBP) > 80 mmHg, compared with the old guideline of SBP >140 mmHg or DBP > 90 mmHg. The new definition would increase number of persons eligible for hypertension treatment. Our objectives were to estimate how many more persons with type 2 diabetes would be eligible for hypert...
