2011 CDC Diabetes Statistics (America)

Although these are new figures by the U.S. Centre for Disease Control. I would say that Canadian figures would be on par. We delude ourselves into thinking that we're a healthier nation.


Nearly 26 million Americans have diabetes, but an estimated 79 million adults have prediabetes according to a new report issued by CDC.

1. Approximately 8.3% of Americans of all ages are affected by diabetes

2. 11.3% of Americans aged at least 20 years have diabetes

3. Approximately 27% of Americans who have diabetes do not know

4. 35% of individuals aged at least 20 in the USA have prediabetes

5. Between 90% to 95% of all diabetes patients in the USA have diabetes type 2.

That means 115 million Americans out of 360 million are pre or actual diabetics.

Yours in Health,
