National Diabetes Month Resources

Nearly 26 million people have diabetes in the United States, and pre-diabetes is far more common than previously believed. About 35 percent of U.S. adults, 20 years and older, or 79 million people, currently have pre-diabetes. Racial and ethnic minority groups are disproportionately affected by diabetes, especially the elderly among these populations. Each year in November, the American Diabetes Association joins with health care organizations, practitioners and advocates in raising awareness about the disease.
