It’s the seventh leading cause of death in the US, but is severely under-reported due to it going undiagnosed and being an underlying cause of death in many cases. Nearly 30 million Americans or a tenth of the population are living with diabetes with almost a third of those cases going undiagnosed. About 2 million new diagnoses occur every year with another 86 million Americans falling in the pre-diabetes range. It costs Americans nearly a quarter trillion dollars a year in medical costs and reduced productivity. Living with and treating diabetes is taking a big toll on Americans. Source:
