The Diabetes Report Card 2014

Diabetes Report Card Cover

The Diabetes Report Card is published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) every 2 years based on the Catalyst to Better Diabetes Care section, in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. The 2014 Diabetes Report Card provides information on the status of diabetes in the United States. It includes information and data on diabetes, gestational diabetes, prediabetes, preventive care practices, risk factors, quality of care, outcomes, progress made towards meeting national diabetes goals and to the extent possible, national and state trends. 

Building on the 2012 Diabetes Report Card, the 2014 Report Card has been expanded to include data on Diabetes Trends over time illustrated by U.S. maps, Diabetes and Youth, Gestational Diabetes, and Stories from the Field. Nationally, the report shows some decreasing trends of five major health complications - heart attack, stroke, amputations of the legs and feet, end-stage renal disease, and deaths due to high blood sugar (hyperglycemic) crisis. In addition, the report highlights Diabetes Prevention and Control Recommendations from the Community Preventive Services Task Force and the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force.

For over 30 years, scientific and programmatic expertise from CDC has increased what is known about what works to improve the health of Americans with diabetes. These efforts have led to the establishment of various public health initiatives that are designed to prevent diabetes and control its complications; including State Diabetes Prevention and Control Programs, the National Diabetes Surveillance System, and the National Diabetes Prevention Program. Along with support from many of our diabetes partners, these programs have laid the groundwork for sustainable, evidence-based programs and policies at the national, state, and local levels.
