CDC Releases "2017 Diabetes Report Card"
diabetes report card cover
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Division of Diabetes Translation has released the 2017 "Diabetes Report Card". https://www.cdc.gov/diabetes/library/reports/congress.html The "Diabetes Report Card" provides the most current information and data available about diabetes and prediabetes, along with diabetes-related preventive care practices, health outcomes, risk factors, and national and state trends.
As the seventh leading cause of death in the United States, diabetes is one of the nations most serious and urgent health concerns. However, the "Diabetes Report Card" shows some encouraging trends in diabetes management and prevention of type 2 diabetes:
* The rate of new cases of diabetes among US adults has decreased. * Overall rates of diagnosed diabetes seem to be stabilizing (although not in all populations). * The number of organizations that deliver the National Diabetes Prevention Program and the number of adults participating in the program has increased.
The "Diabetes Report Card" also recognizes ongoing challenges:
* Members of some racial and ethnic minority groups are more likely to have diagnosed diabetes than non-Hispanic whites. * The rate of new cases of diabetes among children and adolescents has increased. * Although an estimated 84.1 million US adults have prediabetes, only 11.6% of themare aware of having it.
