Diabetes Alert Day!
American Diabetes Association Diabetes Alert Day® is on March 24, 2020! Observed annually on the fourth Tuesday in March, Diabetes Alert Day is a one-day “wake-up call” that focuses on the seriousness of diabetes and the importance of understanding your risk.
Did You Know?
Diabetes affects about 30.3 million Americans or about 9.4 percent of the U.S. population.
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.
