The article presents a report prepared on the burden of diabetes mortality in Finland during 1988-2007. It examined the trends in gender, age and socioeconomic differences in the burden of diabetes mortality in the population aged 35-80 and potential years of life lost (PYLL) due to diabetes. It reports that diabetes related mortality was higher among older Finns. It concludes that better treatment balance is required to prevent diabetes complications and decrease the diabetes mortality.
