Death rate for diabetes mellitus in Canada 2000-2019

The death rate due to diabetes mellitus in Canada has fallen since 2000 from 21.8 per 100,000 population to 18.4 deaths per 100,000 population in 2019. Diabetes is one of the leading causes of death in Canada. In the United States, it was responsible for 21.4 deaths per 100,000 population in 2018, and caused around 1.5 million deaths globally in 2019.

About diabetes

Diabetes mellitus is due to an insufficient production of insulin within the pancreas or a lack of response from the body to the insulin that is produced. The most common type of diabetes mellitus is type II diabetes, which accounts for over 90 percent of diabetes cases in the United States. Type II diabetes occurs when cells in the body are unresponsive to insulin and may lead to a decrease in insulin production as well.

Prevention and costs

One of the greatest problems with type II diabetes is that it can lead to many different complications such as some types of cancer, cardiovascular disease, and even amputations. This type of diabetes is largely associated with overweight and obese populations and those who are physically inactive. It is also considered a preventable disease by maintaining healthy diets and balanced lifestyles. Health care expenditures to treat diabetes in the United States mounted to some 295 billion U.S. dollars as of 2019, while China, a country with a lower diabetes incidence but a much larger population, expended about 109 billion U.S. dollars.
