Many thanks in advance

Have you thought about running proportional hazards regression. Doing this you would be able to say at time period 1,2,3,etc., blank proportion of the sample has condition Z. Though, not sure if everyone in your sample is at the same disease state for X. Using the regression would also allow you to control for other covariates.

Though you could pick a time frame and just crudely report your incidence as well.

What is your sample size? If it is really small, it may be hard to make conclusions off the standardization with confidence, since due to sampling variability you could easily have a sample not that reflect of the population. Unless your sample was take at random, which I imagine it was not.
