    Fast facts on diabetes -- Estimation methods -- Diagnosed and undiagnosed diabetes -- Diagnosed diabetes -- New cases of diagnosed diabetes -- Prediabetes -- Gestational diabetes in the United States -- Treatment of diabetes, United States, 2007-2009 -- Deaths among people with diabetes, United States, 2007 -- Estimated diabetes costs in the United States, 2007 -- Complications of diabetes in the United States -- Preventing diabetes complications -- General information.

    "The estimates in this fact sheet were derived from various data systems of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Indian Health Service's (IHS) National Patient Information Reporting System (NPIRS), the U.S. Renal Data System of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the U.S. Census Bureau, and published studies. The estimated percentages and the total number of people with diabetes and prediabetes were derived from 2005-2008 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES), 2007-2009 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), 2009 IHS data, and 2010 U.S. resident population estimates. The diabetes and prediabetes estimates from NHANES were applied to the 2010 U.S. resident population estimates to derive the estimated number of adults with diabetes or prediabetes. The methods used to generate the estimates for the fact sheet may vary over time and need to be considered before comparing fact sheets. In contrast to the 2007 National Diabetes Fact Sheet, which used fasting glucose data to estimate undiagnosed diabetes and prediabetes, the 2011 National Diabetes Fact Sheet uses both fasting glucose and hemoglobin A1c (A1c) levels to derive estimates for undiagnosed diabetes and prediabetes. These tests were chosen because they are most frequently used in clinical practice. Detailed information about the data sources, methods, and references are available at http://www.cdc.gov/diabetes/pubs/references11.htm." - p. 2
