Diabetes Cases in the Country

The 2014 National Statistic report on diabetes indicates that a total of 29.1 million people or 9.3% of the United States population are diagnosed with diabetes. Meanwhile, there are 8.1 million people who are still unaware that they have diabetes.

The Diabetes Prevention Program study reported a 58% reduction in incidents of type 2 diabetes among adults with pre-diabetes as a result of lifestyle changes. Diabetes education and health coaching enhance patients' commitment to lifestyle changes and risk reduction.

The American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE) and the American Diabetes Association (ADA) are two certifying bodies that ensure that diabetes programs are approved to deliver evidence-based information and standards for best practice. The AADE is also the certifying body for diabetes educators and paraprofessional supports.
