DIABETES EDUCATION

HIGHLY PREVALENT AND COSTLY CHRONIC DISEASE

According to the American Diabetes Association, as of 2019 over 37 million persons in the United States are living with diabetes. Of that number approximately 8.5 million were undiagnosed. And another 96 million persons were prediabetic

The incidence of diabetes is growing at an alarming rate in the United States. And the economic impact is growing as well. In 2017 the cost of diabetes rose to $327 billion in 2017 up from $245 billion in 2012.

Self-management education and training are parts of a collaborative process between Diabetes Educators, patients and healthcare professionals. This collaboration helps empower people with or at risk for diabetes to successfully manage the disease.
