The state of US health, 1990-2010: burden of diseases, injuries, and risk factors.

Age-standardized years of life lost due to premature mortality (YLLs) rates increased for Alzheimer disease, drug use disorders, chronic kidney disease, kidney cancer, and falls. The diseases with the largest number of years lived with disability (YLDs) in 2010 were low back pain, major depressive disorder, other musculoskeletal disorders, neck pain, and anxiety disorders. As the US population has aged, YLDs have comprised a larger share of disability-adjusted life-years (DALYs) than have YLLs. The leading risk factors related to DALYs were dietary risks, tobacco smoking, high body mass index, high blood pressure, high fasting plasma glucose, physical inactivity, and alcohol use.
