Preventing Diabetes

Nearly 26 million Americans have diabetes, a serious disease in which blood glucose (blood sugar) levels are above normal. About one-third of people with diabetes do not even know they have it. Many people do not find out they have diabetes until they are faced with serious health problems.

An estimated 79 million adults in the U.S. have prediabetes, placing them at increased risk for developing type 2 diabetes.
