The number of people with diabetes in Ukraine is growing every year: since 2017, no statistics are kept

The number of people with diabetes in Ukraine is growing every year: since 2017, no statistics are kept 1,270,929! Such a long list of figures is the number of people with diabetes in Ukraine. Such data, as of January 1, 2017, are provided by the Center for Medical Statistics of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine. But since then, statistics on the prevalence of diabetes in Ukraine have not been collected. Apparently, now there are many more people with diabetes, because according to the data obtained, from 2008 to 2013, scientists have registered a steady increase in their number. In particular, during this period (2008-2013) there were more than 240 thousand more patients. In 2014, fewer people with diabetes were registered. But this trend may be due to a lack of data from the occupied territories. And since 2015, there has been another increase in the number and proportion of people with diabetes until 2017.

At the same time, there is another source of information that allows scientists to draw conclusions about the state of medical care for people with diabetes in Ukraine. On December 23, 2015, by the order of the Ministry of Health, the Register of people with diabetes who need insulin therapy was created. It became the basis for the functioning of the insulin reimbursement system.

The number of cases of blindness in people receiving insulin therapy according to a detailed analysis attracts attention. Due to the long course of diabetes mellitus and insufficient compensation of carbohydrate metabolism, more than 8,000 people were diagnosed with complete vision loss. Also, according to the register, dialysis is a problem for about one thousand people with diabetes.

We also know about the problems of rehabilitation of people after amputations of any level: In 2019, more than 2 thousand were held. In 2020, 1,300 patients with diabetes underwent amputation. All these people need rehabilitation and attention. This should be systematically organized. And we are talking about 1/6 of the total number of people with diabetes, about whom we have fairly accurate data recorded in the register.

First of all, the Ukrainian Diabetes Federation appealed to the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) to use its materials and have the same methods of data collection and processing.
