The aim of the article: to study the medical and social aspects of diabetes mellitus and diabetic retinopathy at the regional level. Material and Methods.

Results. In 2016 in the Tambov region, the prevalence of DR in type 1 diabetes is 53.2%, with type 2 diabetes 31.2%, significantly higher than all-Russian indicators, which were registered at 27.2% in patients with type 1 diabetes and 13.0% of patients with type 2 diabetes.
