ENDOCRINE, NUTRIONAL AND METABOLIC DISEASES (E00-E90)

Endocrine, nutritional and metabolic diseases (E00-E90) in 2006 accounted for 5,138 registered deaths, representing 3.8% of all registered deaths. Total deaths due to these underlying causes has increased gradually over the last ten years, from 4,096 in 1997 to 5,138 in 2006. The proportion of all deaths due to these causes has also increased slightly over the same period ranging from 3.2% in 1997 to 3.8% in 2006. The median age at death from this cause was 80.5 years, which was very close to the median age of 80.3 years for all deaths in 2006.


Diabetes (E10-E14) was the underlying cause of death for 3,662 people, or 2.7% of all deaths. 2006 has the highest number of deaths resulting from Diabetes over the past ten years, with the proportion of all deaths represented by this cause increasing (2.3% to 2.7%) over this period. For the first time since 1997, more females than males died from Diabetes in 2006.


Obesity (E66) accounted for a total of 172 deaths in 2006. The overall median age at death due to Obesity as the underlying cause was 64.3 years, which was 16 years less than the median age for all deaths. At 59.4 years for males and 67.0 years for females, the median age at death resulting from Obesity for males was almost ten years lower than it was for females. This is consistent with the median age at death, with Obesity as an underlying cause, reported for males and females from previous years.
