Diabetes by the Numbers

Diabetes kills more Americans each year than breast cancer and AIDS combined.

In the next 24 hours, over 130 people will develop kidney failure because of diabetes.

That’s nearly 50,000 friends, neighbors, co-workers or family members every year.

 

Recent estimates project that as many as 1 in 3 American adults will have diabetes by 2050 unless we take steps to Stop Diabetes®.

 

Every 19 seconds, someone is diagnosed with diabetes.

That’s more than 32,000 friends, neighbors, co-workers and family members in the next 7 days.

 

1 in 11 Americans has it.
1 in 4 adults who has it doesn’t know it.
1 in 3 adults is at risk of developing it.
It is diabetes.
And it must be stopped.

 

In the next 24 hours, over 130 people will develop kidney failure because of diabetes.

That's nearly 50,000 friends, neighbors, co-workers or family members every year.

 

In the next 24 hours, 4,660 new cases of diabetes will be diagnosed. 

That’s more than 3 friends, neighbors, co-workers or family members every minute of every day.
