Diabetes has become the greatest American public health crisis of the next 25 years.
To address the burden of this disease, the American Diabetes Association (ADA) is issuing an urgent call-to-action for Americans to find out their risk for type 2 diabetes during the 21st annual American Diabetes Alert Day.
Nearly 6 million Americans have diabetes, but don’t know it.
Another 57 million Americans have pre-diabetes, placing them at increased risk.
There are two types of diabetes – type 1 and type 2.
