|American Diabetes Month
The vision of the American Diabetes Association is a life free of diabetes and all
of its burdens. Raising awareness of this ever-growing disease is one of the
main efforts behind the mission of the Association. American Diabetes Month is
an important element in this effort, with programs designed to focus the nation's
attention on the issues surrounding diabetes and the many people who are
impacted by the disease. Here are a few of the recent statistics on diabetes:
nearly 30 million children and adults in the United States have diabetes, another
86 million Americans have prediabetes and are at risk for developing type 2
diabetes, The American Diabetes Association estimates that the total national
cost of diagnosed diabetes in the United States is $245 billion.
