Diabetes affects nearly 30 million children and adults in the U.S. today—nearly 10 percent of
Another 86 million Americans have prediabetes and are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes.
Recent estimates project that as many as 1 in 3 American adults will have diabetes by 2050 unless
we take steps to Stop Diabetes®.
Every 19 seconds someone in the U.S. is diagnosed with diabetes.
African Americans and Hispanics are almost twice as likely to have diabetes as non-Hispanic whites.
Being overweight or obese is a leading risk factor for type 2 diabetes. Being overweight can keep your body from making and using insulin properly, and can also cause high blood pressure. Research shows that moderate diet and exercise of about 30 minutes or more, 5 or more days per week, or of 150 or more minutes per week, resulting in a 5% to 7% weight loss can delay and possibly prevent type 2 diabetes.
