Key Messages: Comorbidities in people with diabetes often lead to worse health outcomes. Our study shows that i) the number of comorbidities was the key determinant of health services use for people with diabetes; ii) Diabetes-related vascular diseases (e.g. CVD), obesity-related conditions (e.g. cancer) and conditions highly related to diabetic frailty (e.g. fluid and electrolyte disorders and depression), were the main drivers of hospital care and ER visits.
