|Subject : DIABETES FACT SHEET IN KOREA 2013|
Among adults aged 30 years and older, about 4 million Koreans (12.4%) had diabetes in 2011. 20% of Korean adults were diagnosed as having impaired fasting glucose. 28% of subjects with diabetes were undiagnosed. Only one-third of subjects with diabetes have reached target goal for glycemic control. Obesity, hypertension and dyslipidemia were uncontrolled among subjects with diabetes. One-third of subjects with diabetes had diabetic microvascular complications.
The estimated percentages and the total number of people over the age of 30 with diabetes and prediabetes were determined from data on the 2011 Korea National Health and Nutritional Examination Survey (KNHANES) conducted by the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC) and the Korean Ministry of Health and Welfare. Diagnosis of diabetes was based on fasting plasma glucose ≥ 126 mg/dL, A1C ≥ 6.5%, current anti-diabetes medication, or previous diagnosis. Impaired fasting glucose (IFG) was defined based on fasting plasma glucose of 100-125 mg/dL.
