The epidemic of type-2 diabetes and its warning sign, pre-diabetes, is sweeping across the United States. It has been estimated that around 52% of the adult population will have diabetes or pre-diabetes by 2020. Yet shockingly, the vast majority more than 90% of people with prediabetes, and about a quarter of people with diabetes, are unaware of their conditions.
