Recently the number of diabetic patients in Korea
is increasing conspicuously and the incidence seems
to be unimaginably high.
A) To study diabetes morbidity, first screening
suvey on 3,673 in-patients of the whole Seoul National
University Hospital. By giving glucose tolerance
test to the patients with urine sugar positive, we
discovered 15 diabetics. out of which 8 were previously
known and 7 were new cases. The ratio of male
to female was 2. 1; 1-
Second screening test was given to the bank employees
of a certain bank in Seoul. The postprandial
urine sugar test followed by glucose tolerance test
was given to 1, 174 employees and we discovered 30
diabetics among them. The ratio was 2.6%. Out of
them 16 were previously known and 14 were new
For the past 13 years we have observed 1,650cases
of diabetes in Seoul National University Hospital. Up
to 1958 we had about O. 1% of diabetics among total
medical patients, but during the past two or three
years the number of diabetic patients has significantly
increased- that is. it figured from almost 1, 2 to
1.8% and the average for the past 13 years is 0.9%.
The patients consisted of 1, 12:: males and 528 females.
The ratio is estima ted to be 2. 1; 1-
B) The distritbuion of living diabetics by age and
sex is as follows: the incidence of the 5th and 6 th
decade each is about one third of total diabetic patients,
and in male cases the highest incidence was in
the 5th decade and the next was in 6th, 4th and 7th
in respective order. In female cases, the highest incidence
was in 6th decade and the next was in 5 th,
4th and 7th in respective order. Low incidence in
young age below the 4th decade was a characteristic
feature observed compared with that of Europeans.
The distribution by age at onset was as follows:
the highest frequency was in the 5th decade-namely,
35.5% and the next was in 6th, 4th, 7th and 3rd
decade in respective order. In male cases, it was in
the order of 5 th, 6th, 4 th and 7th decade. and in
female cases it was in the order of 6th, 5th. 4th and
7th decade. The incidence was very low in young
age group below 4th decade.
