    Study projections indicate that these ten diabetes hot spot states will carry half the population burden of diabetes in the United States, with more than 50 percent of Americans with diabetes living in these areas.(1)  

    "This research maps the alarming demographic realities of diabetes through 2025 if we don't make fundamental changes, particularly in our lifestyles and health system," said William Robert Rowley, M.D., Senior Fellow at the Institute for Alternative Futures and lead author of the study.  "The burden of diabetes will not fall equally. To change this tragic trajectory, it is imperative that public and private agencies work together on national, as well as state and local levels."

    The study includes state specific data on minority populations and seniors, providing a focus on vulnerable communities often affected disproportionately by diabetes. Nearly one quarter of senior citizens living in the United States in 2010, or approximately 10.8 million,(1) have diabetes. Of these, 7.9 million had diagnosed diabetes and another 2.9 million had diabetes that had not been yet diagnosed.(1)  Medicare currently covers diabetes scre
