84 million adults (1 in 3 adults) in the US have pre-diabetes, a condition that, when untreated, becomes diabetes in 5 years. 90% of these people don’t even know they have it and therefore end up developing type 2 diabetes.

Over 460 million people around the world have diabetes and every 8 seconds someone dies from diabetes. In the last 20 years, the number of people in the U.S. with diabetes has doubled now making the number 34.2 million adults even though 7 million of them don’t know they have it. Almost 10% of the population and 1 in 7 people in the United States alone suffer with diabetes.

Diabetes is the leading cause of Chronic Kidney Disease in the United States, lower-limb amputations, and adult-onset blindness. Adults with diabetes have a two- to three-fold increased risk of heart attack and stroke than people without diabetes and at an earlier age. There are numerous other complications related to diabetes including:

“One of them is prediabetic”
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Nervous system damage (neuropathy)
  • Hearing impairment
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Depression etc.

Diabetes is the 7th leading cause of death but this number could be much higher due to multiple complications of diabetes being the top 5 leading causes of death. Heart disease (#1), Stroke (#2) and Alzheimer’s disease (#5). Most of the time these complications are listed on death certificates instead of diabetes, which could have been the cause.

Medical costs, lost work and wages for the 27 million Americans with diagnosed diabetes totals $327 billion yearly. Average medical expenditures for American individuals with diagnosed diabetes is about $13,700 per year, almost 3 times higher than those without diabetes.

Globally, 825 billion dollars are spent on diabetes not including work days lost, which would may this number significantly higher.

Diabetes is still steadily growing. It is said that if current trends continue, over 700 million adults worldwide would be affected with diabetes by 2025.

Despite these numbers, type 2 diabetes is completely preventable.
