ENDOCRINE, NUTRITIONAL AND METABOLIC DISEASES (E00-E90)

Endocrine, nutritional and metabolic diseases (E00-E90) in 2007 accounted for 5,355 registered deaths, representing 3.9% of all registered deaths. Total deaths due to these underlying causes have increased gradually over the last ten years, from 3,965 in 1998 to 5,355 in 2007. The proportion of all deaths due to these causes has also increased slightly over the same period from 3.1% in 1998 to 3.9% in 2007. The median age at death for this cause was 80.8 years, which was very close to the median age of 80.5 years for all deaths in 2007.

Diabetes (E10-E14) was the underlying cause of death for 3,810 people, or 71% of all deaths due to Endocrine, nutritional and metabolic diseases. The highest number of deaths resulting from Diabetes over the past ten years was recorded in 2007, with the proportion of all deaths represented by this cause increasing from 2.3% in 1998 to 2.8% in 2007.

Obesity (E66) accounted for a total of 169 deaths in 2007. The overall median age at death due to Obesity as the underlying cause was 59.5 years, which was 21.0 years less than the median age for all deaths. At 58.5 years for males and 61.0 years for females, the median age at death resulting from Obesity for males was almost 3 years lower than it was for females.

(a) Causes selected are those with 20 or more deaths at the 3 digit level of ICD-10.
(b) Causes of death data for 2007 is subject to revision. See Explanatory Notes 3-4 for further information.
(c) Data cells with small values have been randomly assigned to protect the confidentiality of individuals. As a result, some totals will not equal the sum of their components. It is important to note that cells with a zero value have not been affected by confidentialisation.
