STATEMENT OF NEEDIn the United States, diabetes has become an epidemic. Over 25.6 million people, or 11.3% of our population, are affected. Just over one-fourth of these individuals are over the age of 65 while less than 0.26% are younger than 20.
New data reveals that the number of cases is exploding. In 2010 alone, over 1.9 million new diagnoses were made, most commonly to middle aged adults between 45 and 65. It is estimated that another 7 million people are unaware they are affected.
