CDC Releases the National Diabetes Statistics Report, 2014

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released the National Diabetes Statistics Report, 2014 this morning.

The Report presents the most current information on diabetes and prediabetes in the U.S. among people all ages and ethnicities. 

Highlights include:
  • More than 29 million people in the U.S. have diabetes, up from the previous estimate of 26 million in 2010. One in 4 people with diabetes doesn’t know he or she has it.
  • Another 86 million adults – more than one in three adults – have prediabetes. Without weight loss and moderate physical activity, 15 to 30 percent of people with prediabetes will develop type 2 diabetes within five years.
  • 1.7 million people aged 20 years or older were newly diagnosed with diabetes in 2012
  • Non-Hispanic black, Hispanic, and American Indian/Alaska Native adults are about twice as likely to have diagnosed diabetes as non-Hispanic white adults
  • 208,000 people younger than 20 years have been diagnosed with diabetes (type 1 or type 2)
  • The percentage of U.S. adults with prediabetes is similar for non-Hispanic whites (35 percent), non-Hispanic blacks (39 percent), and Hispanics (38 percent)

CDC has created messages and materials to share the new information in the Report and get the information to the people who need it most. These communications products include:
