    Abstract

    A survey of sexes and ages in patients attending the Hartlepool diabetic clinic was carried out for the 20-year period 1948-67. The proportion of men aged 50 and over rose from 25·9% in the first decade to 38·2% in the second. An attempt has been made to explain this pronounced and rapid change.
