More than 34 million people in the United States have diabetes, and 1 in 5 of them don’t know they have it.
More than 88 million US adults—over a third—have prediabetes, and more than 84% of them don’t know they have it.
Diabetes is the 7th leading cause of death in the United States (and may be underreported).
Type 2 diabetes accounts for approximately 90% to 95% of all diagnosed cases of diabetes; type 1 diabetes accounts for approximately 5-10%.
In the last 20 years, the number of adults diagnosed with diabetes has more than doubled as the American population has aged and become more overweight or obese.https://www.cdc.gov/diabetes/basics/quick-facts.html#:~:text=%20The%20Big%20Picture%20%201%20More%20than,Type%202%20diabetes%20accounts%20for%20approximatel…%20More%20
