Percent Distribution of Diabetics and Non-Diabetics, by Functional Status: 2004Diabetics are more impaired (defined as receiving help from another person) on a scale compounded of activities of daily living (ADL) and instrumental ADL. Of non-diabetics, 73.4 percent have none of these disabilities compared to 61.1 percent of diabetics. Diabetics are more impaired across the range of disability scores. For example, 27.0 percent of diabetics receive help with IADLs compared to 19.4 percent of non-diabetics. Again, this is not a function of the age of the two populations since on average diabetics are younger.
