Type 2 Diabetes Statistics and Facts

Type 2 Diabetes Statistics and Facts

 

 

Prevalence & Risk Factors

Type 2 diabetes is a common and increasingly prevalent illness that is largely preventable. In adults, type 2 diabetes accounts for about 90 to 95 percent of all diagnosed cases of diabetes; the remainder are adult-onset (or adult-diagnosed) type 1 diabetes, a  form of diabetes for which the cause is unknown.


   Many of the risk factors for type 2 diabetes include lifestyle decisions and can be eliminated or reduced with time and effort. Cases of diagnosed diabetes cost the United States an estimated $245 billion in 2012, a figure that is expected to rise with the increasing number of diagnosed individuals.



 Research examining fasting glucose (A1C) levels found that 35 percent of U.S. adults age 20 years or older had pre-diabetes (50 percent of those age 65 years or older are considered pre-diabetic); an estimated 79 million Americans age 20 years or older have pre-diabetes. 

 Type 2 diabetes is more prevalent amongst Native Americans, African Americans, Hispanics, and Asian Americans than among Caucasians in the United States.

Prevention

Both type 2 diabetes and its side effects can often be prevented or delayed. The most cost-effective prevention methods include regular physical activity and a healthy diet. Regular visits to a healthcare provider and maintaining a healthy weight are also essential to identifying risks, preventing type 2 diabetes, and delaying its onset.





Up to 85 percent of complications and morbidities among individuals with type 2 diabetes can be prevented, delayed, or effectively treated and minimized with regular visits to a health professional, appropriate monitoring and medication, and a healthy diet and lifestyle. Early identification of potential complications can provide opportunities for intervention, education, and referral to a specialist when necessary.
