Approximately 84 million Americans have prediabetes; 15-30% will develop type 2 diabetes within 5 years, and nearly 90% aren’t aware they have the condition.* Lack of awareness among the public and the significant cost of diabetes to employers’ healthcare spending necessitates identification of prediabetes.
