CDC: One-third of US adults could have diabetes by 2050
from HealthDay News via Bloomberg Businessweek
The number of American adults with diabetes could double or triple by 2050 if current trends continue, warns a federal government study. The number of new diabetes cases a year will increase from eight per 1,000 in 2008 to 15 per 1,000 in 2050, predicts the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. By 2050, between one-fifth and one-third of all adults could have diabetes — with virtually all the increase attributed to type 2 diabetes, which is largely preventable.
