Type 2 diabetes is one of the most common, and fastest growing conditions in the US. 29.1 million adults suffer from diabetes: 21 million are diagnosed and 8.1 million are undiagnosed. Furthermore, another 86 million Americans have prediabetes, but 90% of them don’t know they have it. Without weight loss and moderate physical activity, 15% to 30% of people with prediabetes will develop type 2 diabetes within 5 years, and adults with diabetes are at risk for other complications such as hypertension, vision and nerve problems, kidney failure, and 50% higher risk of premature death than adults without diabetes.
