In the past two decades, diabetes rates in the United States have increased significantly. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly 30 million Americans have diabetes—that’s 10% of the population. Another 86 million Americans are thought to be living with prediabetes—a condition in which blood glucose levels are above normal, but not high enough to be classified as diabetes. Public health experts estimate that one in three Americans will have diabetes by 2050 (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2014). Individuals with diabetes who are able to manage their condition can lead a full life, but uncontrolled diabetes can lead to amputations, vision loss, heart and kidney diseases, and even premature death.
