Wondering if you, your spouse or kids* have diabetes or are at risk?

Check out these facts about diabetes and pre-diabetes:

  • Nearly one in four adults living with diabetes, or 72 million Americans, are unaware they have the disease.
  • Another 84 million Americans have pre-diabetes.
  • Nine out of 10 adults with pre-diabetes don’t know they have it.

A 5 percent weight loss decreases your risk of developing diabetes by 60 percent.
