Type 2 Diabetes Costs in Australia - The Potential Impact of Changes in Diet, Physical Activity and Levels of Obesity

Diabetes mellitus is a chronic disease characterised by insulin insufficiency or resistance to its action, resulting in poor glycaemic control. The recent Australian Diabetes, Obesity and Lifestyle Study (AusDiab) estimated that close to one million (7.5%) Australian adults have diabetes mellitus (Dunstan et al 2001). Type 2 diabetes is the most common form comprising 85 to 90% of those with diabetes mellitus. The most recent cost estimates available suggest approximately $216.7 million in health system costs were attributable to Type 2 diabetes in 1993-94 (Mathers & Penm 1998). In a study of the burden of disease in Australia, diabetes mellitus was estimated to account for 5% of the total burden of disease and was the seventh leading cause of Australian deaths (Mathers, Vos & Stevenson 1999). In addition, complications of diabetes such as heart disease, stroke, blindness, kidney problems, and lower limb amputations, contribute significantly to the overall morbidity and mortality in Australia.

The Bridging Study - comparing results from the 1983, 1985 and 1995 Australian national nutrition surveys

This report provides guidelines for comparing results from the 1983 National Dietary Survey, the 1985 National Dietary Survey of School children and the 1995 National Nutrition Survey. The principle finding of the study is that it is inappropriate to directly compare published results from the 1983 and 1985 surveys with those from the 1995 survey to assess trends in the food and nutrient intake of adults and children. Allowances are needed to account for differences in sample design, collection and processing practices, the food composition databases and changes in the demographic composition of the Australian population between these surveys. The bridging study findings enable the results from these three surveys to be used in dietary monitoring in Australia.

The objective of this product was to conduct preliminary work and make recommendations that will lead to standardised indicators and questions for inclusion in the National Health Data Dictionary.

This study projects future health costs attributable to the progressive ageing of the Australian population based on extensive administrative data on medical practitioner visits (to GPs and specialists), prescription drug consumption and hospital admissions. Scenarios based on these cost data were applied to projections of the Australian population by age and sex out to 2051 — by which time the transient effects of the 'baby-boom' cohort will have worked their way through the system.
