CDC Releases National Diabetes Statistics Report, 2014

CDC 2014 Infographic p 1The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released the National Diabetes Statistics Report, 2014 this week.  The numbers are alarming.
More than 29 million people in the United States have diabetes, up from the previous estimate of 26 million in 2010 One in four people with diabetes doesn’t know he or she has it.  Provided here is a snapshop of the CDC’s 2014 Diabetes Infographic.  To see the entire image, see CDC 2014 Diabetes Infographic.
Another 86 million adults – more than one in three U.S. adults – have prediabetes, where their blood sugar levels are higher than normal but not high enough to be classified as type 2 diabetes.  Only one in ten adults are aware that they have prediabetes. Without weight loss and moderate physical activity, 15 percent to 30 percent of people with prediabetes will develop type 2 diabetes within five years.
A vast array of resources to prevent and manage diabetes are available on CDC websites.  We encourage readers to explore these materials.  To learn more, visit the  National Diabetes Education Program.
