American Diabetes Alert Day

The American Diabetes Association designated March 27 as Diabetes Alert Day to boost awareness of the diabetes epidemic.

Today (March 25) is American Diabetes Association Alert Day. This is a time to find out more about this serious condition that impacts 1 in 12 Americans. Some startling facts and figures from the American Diabetes Association include:

  • Diabetes kills more Americans each year than breast cancer and AIDS combined.
  • In the next 24 hours, diabetes will claim the lives of 200 people.
  • Recent estimates project that as many as 1 in 3 American adults will have diabetes in 2050.
