Diabetic Facts

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.
