Description of the data source, numerator, denominator, survey questions, and other relevant details about the national estimate.
From the 2008 National Health Interview Survey:
When was the last time you had an eye exam in which the pupils were dilated? This would have made you temporarily sensitive to bright light.
[NUMERATOR AND DENOMINATOR:]
Other than during pregnancy, have you EVER been told by a doctor or health professional that you have diabetes or sugar diabetes?
Have you EVER been told by a doctor or health professional that you have diabetes or sugar diabetes?
The numerator is limited to only the persons who reported that they have seen a health professional for an eye examination “less than one month ago” or “1-12 months ago.”
Persons are considered to have diabetes if they respond “yes” to being told by a doctor or health professional that they have diabetes. Those who respond “borderline” are not included. Women who report that the only time they have been diagnosed with diabetes was during pregnancy (gestational diabetes) are also excluded.
