Expenditure for patients with Diabetes

The highest expenditure per patient with Diabetes is spent in Norway (~13.000 USD per year), followed by Switzerland (~12.500 USD), United States of America (~12.000 USD), Luxembourg (11.000) and Monaco (10.000 USD). The lowest mean expenditure can be found in Madagascar (27 USD), followed by Central African Republic (29 USD) and Myanmar (35%). The United States of America has the highest total expenditure (just below 3 billion USD), followed by China, Japan, Germany and France.

The highest absolute number of adults (18+ years) living with diabetes can be found in China, followed by India, the United States of America, Brazil and Mexico. Indonesia, Russia, Germany, Egypt and Japan complete the top 10. When it comes to per cent of the population, the population of the small Pacific island lives in the highest danger of Diabetes: Marshall Islands (31% of the adult population), Tuvalu (27%) and Niue (24%) lead here. Saudia Arabia is the first non Island state on place 11 with just above 18%. The first European country is Malta with 13%. The European country with the lowest prevalence is Greenland (2.5%), followed by Ireland (4%) and Lithuania (5.5%). Among the five countries with the highest absolute number of adults with Diabetes, Mexico has the highest prevalence (14%), followed by the United States (13%), China (11%), Brazil (9%) and India 8%).

According to the Diabetes Atlas: “The North America and Caribbean Region has the highest regional prevalence of diabetes (15.4%). In this region, 1 in 8 adults has diabetes.Increasing prevalence of type 2 diabetes is associated with higher levels of urbanisation, ageing populations, and more sedentary lifestyles, including obesity, insufficient physical activity and a higher intake of unhealthy foods. The causes of the increased incidence of type 1 diabetes are not clear.

Technical Notes

This map shows each country proportional to the total expenditure for patient with obesity (over 18 years old) living there in 2017. 

Data sources
This map uses data by Diabetes Atlas (last accessed March 2019). We aim to map as complete data as possible and therefore estimate data for missing values. In some cases, missing data for very small territories is not used in the cartogram and that area is therefore omitted in the map.

Further notes on the data, as well as all modifications to the original data source are noted in our data sheets.
