NATIONAL DIABETES MONTH
According to the the July 2017 statistics from the Centers for Disease Control, over 100 million people in the United States are diabetic or pre-diabetic.
If diabetes were a country it would be the fifth largest country in the world by population. If undiagnosed diabetics were included, it would be the third largest only after India and China.
One out of three babies born in the year 2000 will become diabetic in their lifetime if conditions don’t change. One out of two babies of color.
One in four Americans over 65 have diabetes, over 50% have pre-diabetes.
More money is spent managing diabetes globally every year than the United States spends annually on the most sophisticated military in the world. ($825 billion vs. $600 billion).
