Glycemic control, adults with diagnosed diabetes, 2005–08 and 2009–12

Increase Desired (objective D-5.2) || Decrease Desired (objective D-5.1)

SOURCE: National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES), CDC/NCHS.

NOTE: Data are for the proportion of adults aged 18 and over with diagnosed diabetes who had an HbA1c value less than 7 percent (objective D-5.2) and those who had an HbA1c value greater than 9 percent (objective D-5.1), and are age adjusted using the year 2000 standard population. 

Confidence Interval= 95% confidence interval.

Between 2005–08 and 2009–12, the proportion of adults aged 18 and over with diagnosed diabetes who had an HbA1c value less than 7 percent (objective D-5.2) decreased 9.9%, from 53.5% to 48.2% (age adjusted), away from the Healthy People 2020 target of 58.9% (age adjusted), although this decrease was not statistically significant. On the other hand, the proportion of adults with diagnosed diabetes who had an HbA1c value greater than 9 percent (objective D-5.1) increased 17.3%, from 17.9% to 21.0% (age adjusted), away from the 2020 target of 16.1% (age adjusted), although this increase was not statistically significant.
