How many people in New Mexico have diabetes? How does this compare to the United States? What are the data on diabetes complications? These are questions that people often ask. On this website you will find documents which provide data to help address these questions. For example, there are graphics on the trends of diabetes prevalence in the state, a county level prevalence sheet, and statistics about risk factors for diabetes, among others. New reports will be added periodically to this site.
Our mission is to reduce the burden of diabetes in New Mexico and improve the quality of life for all New Mexicans who are affected and/or impaired by diabetes, by preventing and controlling the complications of diabetes..
