Diabetes mellitus (DM) is not only a major medical but also an economic problem worldwide. Significant economic costs and social damage caused by the increasing prevalence of diabetes, comorbid pathology, complications, high disability and mortality. In the article we analyzed the indicators of disability in patients with diabetes in Dnepropetrovsk region and in Ukraine and identified methodical approaches to determining the degree of disability. Results of the study showed that the indicators of disability due to diabetes in Dnepropetrovsk region and Ukraine are stable and averages 1.7 and 1.5 per 10 thousand population, respectively, in 2014-2019. Intensive indicator of primary disability due to DM among the employable population in Dnipropetrovsk region is growing every year. It’s become much higher than disability indicator among total adult population. In our study we proposed criteria for determining the signs of disability based on criteria of life limitations.
