Adults with doctor-diagnosed diabetes

Source: NHS Digital

Base: Adults aged 16 and over

The rate of doctor-diagnosed diabetes has increased since 1994, from 2% to 7% in 2019.

Notes: The HSE data makes no distinction between type 1 and type 2 diabetes because of changing patterns of the disease. 

Year-on-year fluctuations may not indicate real changes and can be within the margins of sampling error. We comment only on the changes that are more likely to reflect a real change.
