Insured losing access to healthcare: U.S. study: About 20 percent of the U.S. population delayed or were unable to get access to medical care when they needed it in 2007, up from 14 percent four years earlier, a study released on Thursday found. About 9.5 million more people went without medical care in 2007, compared with 2003, the nationally representative survey released by the Center for Studying Health System Change. In a striking finding, the survey said although those without insurance were more likely to report going without care, those with insurance had a greater percentage increase in unmet medical needs. Cost was the biggest obstacle to care for both the insured and the uninsured, the study said. For the insured, individuals said they were unable to get their health insurer to pay for treatment, or that a doctor or hospital would not accept their insurance. About 47 million people in the United States do not have health insurance, a number that has been climbing since 2000. Diabetes In Control

There Has Been a 15% Increase in Diabetes In Just 2 Years: New government estimates show that nearly 24 million people, 8% of the population in the United States have diabetes, an increase of more than 3 million in two years. The numbers are truly staggering, and the fact that the likelihood of developing diabetes increases with age makes it frightening to think of how many more will be affected over the next decade as the population of baby boomers enter a higher risk bracket for diabetes.
