New record: 26 million Americans now have diabetes

Quote:

What is perhaps even more concerning than the sharp rise in diabetes cases is the even larger increase in pre-diabetes cases. According to data, the pre-diabetes rate jumped by nearly 40 percent since 2008. So if the entire pre-diabetic population eventually becomes diabetic, nearly one third of the entire U.S. population will eventually have diabetes.

Not surprising to me. I would guess that close to half of my congregation is either pre-diabetic, and just don't know it, or actual diabetics.

Half my family has diabetes. Sadly many of them run for the low-fat "healthy" food in stores, thinking it helps when it's really jammed with other nonsense.
