There have been few improvements in diabetes diagnosis, linkage of patients to care, or achievement of treatment targets in the United States since 2005 despite advances in care, new research suggests.
The findings, from 2488 participants in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) cycles covering 2005 to 2016, were published online August 12 in JAMA Internal Medicine. The data suggest that gaps in the diabetes care "cascade," defined as the sequence of diagnosis, linkage to care, and achievement of treatment targets, essentially remained the same from 2005 through 2016.
