  • Nearly 1 in 4 adults living with diabetes, or 7.2 million Americans, are unaware that they have the disease.
  • Another 84 million Americans have prediabetes, a condition in which blood glucose levels are higher than normal, but not high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes.
  • Nine out of 10 adults with prediabetes don’t know they have it.
