Diabetes is becoming a major chronic disease which affects human health. The diabetic data in hospital of large amount contains much information. Here we analyzed the in hospital diabetes’s data and hope to provide basic data and scientific basis for the control of diabetes and the decrease of economic burden of diabetics in China. Mathematic statistical methods were made to the in hospital diabetics’ data. Retrospective analysis was made to the age, gender, days in hospital, cost and complications. The result shows that more and more young people have diabetes, and the number of diabetics is growing. The average days in hospital of diabetics is increasing along with age. Average number of complications is 3.108. Hospital costs are getting higher along with the number of complications. The average days in hospital decreases from 14.15 in 2006 to 10.61 in 2013. Hospital costs presented an increasing trend, so does daily hospital costs. This study resulted in a fact that age, gender, days in hospital, cost and complication of diabetics has impacts on each other. Cost is directly influenced by the number of complications and the days in hospital. People in China should pay attention to the prevention of diabetes, and diabetics should follow the doctor’s advice to control blood sugar to normal state.
