I posted on pre-diabetes two years ago, but the latest statistics are in and they make for very worrying reading. It is estimated that there are 84million Americans who are pre-diabetic and are at very high risk of developing full blown diabetes. CDC January 2018
According to the World Health Authority it is estimated that there are 400 million people worldwide with diabetes. In the US around 30 million and the UK approximately 3.8 million have been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.
Unfortunately it is the many millions who are undiagnosed that are at the greatest risk
You do not need to have full-blown diabetes to be suffering from some of the symptoms associated with the disease. There is a condition called pre-diabetesthat can be managed with diet and exercise and does not have to lead to the development of type 2 diabetes in the future.
