Get a snapshot of the diabetes data most important to primary care from the National Diabetes Statistics Report, 2020.

The National Diabetes Statistics Report 2020 estimates that in 2018, nearly 88 million US adults had prediabetes -- a number for primary care clinicians to keep in mind during routine patient care. The number suggests keeping a low level of suspicion for glycemic dysregulation in patients with known risk factors for diabetes including family history, obesity, elevated cholesterol, and hypertension.

The short slide show below highlights more data for primary care from the report on the condition of patients with diabetes in the US, including prevalence of risk factors, diabetes-related complications, and additional important measures.
