    The mean incidence rates per million population increased from 99 in 1989–1991 to 179 in 2003–2005. In 2000, Israel was the second leading country for incidence of RRT. Age-adjusted incidence rates increased by 67% [95% confidence interval (CI): 49–87%], from 1989 to 2001, but the trend was attenuated between 2002 and 2005.The increase in incidence was positively associated with age, the largest increase being among the elderly aged ≥75 years (RR: 3.18, 95%CI: 2.72–3.70). Diabetes accounted for 41% of RRT in 2001 vs only 19% in 1989. There was no increase in 1-year survival between the beginning and the end of the study period. Patients with diabetes-associated RRT had 57% increased risk of 1-year mortality (adjusted HR: 1.57 95% CI: 1.51–1.63).
