Diabetes

Diabetes occurs when there is too much glucose (sugar) in the blood and not enough in the cells of your body. This can interfere with your body’s ability to convert sugar, starches and other food into energy needed for daily life.

Care You Should Achieve - Measuring high-quality care for diabetes includes tracking:

  • If your blood pressure is appropriate (less than 140/90 mmHg)
  • If your level of LDL or “bad” cholesterol is appropriate (less than 100mg/dl)
  • If your blood sugar (A1c) is appropriate (less than 8 percent)
  • That you are not using tobacco
  • That you take aspirin daily if appropriate 

Symptoms of diabetes include:

  • frequent trips to the bathroom
  • unquenchable thirst
  • unintended weight loss
  • weakness and fatigue

How Will This Help Me? When patients with diabetes meet these treatment goals, they are less likely to experience complications such as nerve damage, kidney disease, eye problems, heart disease and stroke. Diabetes cannot be cured, but if effectively controlled, patients can lead a healthy life.

More Information About Diabetes - Each year, more than 26,000 Minnesotans are newly diagnosed with diabetes. Diabetes is the sixth leading cause of death in Minnesota. More than 1 in 3 adults in Minnesota have diabetes. Rates of diabetes are 8 to 15 times greater in Minnesotans between the ages of 45 and 64 and aged 65 and older compared to 18 to 44 year olds. Diabetes costs Minnesotans $2.68 billion or almost $12,000 per Minnesotan with diabetes. About $1 billion is due to lost productivity. (Minnesota Department of Health)



The Data:

The bar charts and percentages below tell you how well Minnesota physicians and other health care providers help patients to better control their diabetes.

The average provider rating statewide is 39%. This means that almost 4 out of 10 adult patients with diabetes met all five treatment goals.

High provider numbers are a sign of quality care. Your provider may have a higher or lower rating depending on how many patients met recommended treatment goals. Small differences in these percentages don’t necessarily reflect the quality of your care. It is important to look at the larger differences and talk with your provider if you have questions or concerns.

This report is based on information from patient medical records for services received between January 1, 2013 and December 31, 2013.
