Percent of Beneficiaries Who Have Diabetes, by Age: 2004This figure presents the percent of beneficiaries in each age group who have diabetes. At least two factors are at work: the number of diabetics is increased by the onset of the disease over time, and rates of mortality and institutionalization reduce that number. Mortality and institutionalization most likely occur more frequently with diabetes than without it.
