Abstract

AIMS: To estimate and compare the prevalence of self-reported diabetes based on nationally representative surveys of the Hungarian adult population in 2002 (published data – Hungarostudy) and a survey in 2012. METHODS: A cross-sectional computer-assisted telephone interview survey on a stratified representative sample of community-dwelling adults (n = 1000) in 2012. To describe self-reported diabetes prevalence and its temporal changes generalized linear models were used and results were compared to figures from Hungarostudy. RESULTS: Age standardized prevalence of self-reported type 2 diabetes was 11.7% (95%CI 10.0–13.8%) without gender or rural–urban differences in 2012. People with self-reported diabetes were older than controls (mean [SE]: 63.9 [0.9] vs. 45.9 [0.3] years, p < 0.0001). The prevalence of diabetes sharply increased after 40 years of age and peaked at age 70 (27.7% [2.5], page*age < 0.0001). The prevalence of self-reported diabetes increased by 89% (OR 1.89, 95%CI 1.53–2.32) from 6.2 to 11.7% between the two surveys with the most pronounced increase in the age group 55–64 years (from 11.6 to 24.4%). CONCLUSIONS: We reported an alarming increase in the prevalence of self-reported type 2 diabetes in the last decade that mostly affects working age people. If this trend continues, a major public health crisis in Hungary can be envisaged.
