Ten States Bear Brunt of Diabetes Burden

ening, but the utilization rate is low.(3) In 2010, approximately 15.9 million (39 percent) African-Americans and 17.7 million (36 percent) Hispanic-Americans have either diabetes or pre-diabetes.(1)

"There are very few sources projecting the future burden of diabetes at the state and metropolitan level," said Mike Mawby, Chief Government Affairs Officer at Novo Nordisk. "By sponsoring projections and cost studies that drill down locally, our goal is to provide hard evidence that can spur action to address the need for better preventative and management programs across the country."

Novo Nordisk is working with a variety of public and private partners to help change the current course of the diabetes epidemic, in particular through initiatives that focus on targeted screening of people with known risk factors for diabetes and prevention programs that promote positive lifestyle changes.  This is urgently needed to help reduce the future burden of diabetes in the United States.

"It is clear that diabetes is a growing threat to the public's health. The projections in this study provide another compelling case for the need to aggressively prevent the spread of diabetes," said Jonathan Lever, Vice President for Health Strategy and Innovation at YMCA of the USA. "The good news is that there are programs that can help prevent the frightening future presented in this report, such as the YMCA's Diabetes Prevention Program, a group-based program that supports people in their struggle to eat healthier and get more physical activity.  We all have to do more to get people into these programs and help them stay healthy."

The YMCA's Diabetes Prevention Program is designed especially for people at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes and is based on the landmark Diabetes Prevention Program funded by the National Institutes of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
