The percentage of diabetic patients who have their diabetes under control (HbA1c values <8.0% ) in our region is 74.4%, according to data from the Rochester Regional Health Information Organization (RHIO). County-level diabetes control rates for women are quite variable, with the highest control rates in counties to the west. Visit the RocHealthData map room to see the somewhat lower control rates for men.
These control rates, part of the Community Indicators dataset available on RocHealthData, are based on clinical information from 2017 for our local 13-county region. These never-presented-before measures include additional data about diabetes, including HbA1c values for those with and without a diabetes diagnosis, as well as pre-diabetes rates, summarized by county and by age.
The complete dataset also includes information on smoking, obesity, and diabetes and is freely available for download to members of RocHealthData. If you are a member, click here for data access. To register for access, please go to: https://rochealthdata.org/register/
