In the United States, 26 million children and adults in the United States have been diagnosed with diabetes, and that number is increasing.
Even more concerning, however, is that 79 million Americans have prediabetes, or an elevated glucose level. Although this glucose level isn't high enough for a diagnosis of diabetes, it increases the risk of developing diabetes, heart disease, and strokes. Without significant changes in lifestyle and health, those with PD will develop diabetes too.
