Underwritten by Novo Nordisk's National Changing Diabetes(R) Program (NCDP) as part of its Economic Barometer, the Economic Cost of Pre-diabetes findings will be published in the upcoming issue of Population Health Management.

Based on these staggering statistics, experts agreed that policy-makers need to face diabetes head on, just as our nation has done with other diseases, including AIDs and breast cancer.

"This is a time of opportunity from a legislative perspective to make a change in healthcare in the United States. We need look no further than the numbers to realize that real health reform isn't possible unless the country reforms diabetes prevention, detection and care. These changes will require focused engagement from individual Americans as well as state and federal governments," said Dana Haza, senior director, National Changing Diabetes(R) Program.

When considering the NIH research dollar allocation for FY 2008, the most recent year available, it is evident that diabetes research is desperately under-funded:

  • Only 3.7 percent of the NIH budget goes to diabetes research, despite the fact that one-in-five health care dollars is spent caring for someone with diabetes and one-in-ten dollars spent on health care is attributable to diabetes and its c
