Federal statistics estimate that more than 32 million Americans have diabetes, and over 7 million Americans are unaware of their diabetic state. Studies show that, while diabetes is a chronic illness indiscriminately affecting Americans of all ages and races, the percentage of diabetes increases with age and Native Americans, African Americans, Hispanic Americans and Asian Americans/Pacific Islanders have the highest prevalence of diagnosed diabetes (American Diabetes Association, 2017).
