105 Million in U.S. Have Diabetes or Prediabetes, CDC Says
Date:1/26/2011

in direct medical expenses, according to the CDC. People with diabetes are at increased risk for heart attack, stroke, high blood pressure, kidney failure, blindness and amputation of feet and legs.

"With more patients, there are more costs. But even the cost per patient has gone up," Resta said. "Newer diabetes medications are expensive, often 10 times the cost of older generic medicines. When patients are diagnosed younger, they are more likely to eventually require multiple diabetes medications, which also drives up costs. Also, the longer the duration of diabetes, the more likely the patient is to have [expensive] complications."

If current trends continue, as many as one in three American adults could have diabetes by 2050, predicted a CDC study published last year.
