This report, a publication of the CDC, provides eye opening research on the prevalence and incidence of diabetes and prediabetes, risk factor for complications, acute and long term complications, deaths and costs.

On Tuesday, Feb. 18 the CDC/Division of Diabetes Translation (DDT) released the National Diabetes Statistics Report, 2020, which provides the latest findings on the state of diabetes in the United States.

This document is intended to provide up-to-date scientific data and statistics on diabetes and its burden in the United States. Formerly  known as the National Diabetes Fact Sheet, this consensus document is written primarily for a scientific audience.
