The total annual cost of pre-diabetes to the nation's health care system is more than $25 billion, or $443 for each adult suffering from the condition, according to the study.

"These cost estimates are likely to understate the real economic burden of pre-diabetes and do not take into account the reduced quality of life associated with pre-diabetes," said Yiduo Zhang, PhD, The Lewin Group, and lead author of the pre-diabetes study.
