  • Description:
    November is National Diabetes Month. In the United States, 30 million adults aged ≥18 years are living with diabetes and 84 million with prediabetes (1). Among persons aged ≥65 years, one in four is estimated to have diabetes, and one in two has prediabetes (1). Persons with prediabetes are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and stroke (2). However, type 2 diabetes can be prevented or delayed through a structured lifestyle change program that promotes weight loss, healthy eating, and increased physical activity (2). A report on diabetes among Medicare beneficiaries is included in this issue of MMWR (3).
