These numbers seem insane. Are they right?
Back in 1995, about 4.5 percent of adults in the U.S. had been diagnosed with diabetes. By 2010, the prevalence had zoomed to 8.2 percent. An interactive map shows how much worse diabetes has become in less than a generation.

Hard to say.
Didn't really expect an answer, but the numbers suggest a huge problem. I can't imagine the consequences if that kind of growth continues.
Wilford Brimley says so.
What numbers dumbfuck? 2 or 288?
Yeah but if you take the UM coaching staff out of the equation, the numbers look significantly better.
i think those stats have been sweetened a little.

I hate this place
I love this place.
Was diagnosed Feb 11, 2003. Happy belated 16th birthday gift. Most 16 year olds get a car, I got diabetes, or as I prefer to say, liveabetes.
Of course they are. There is sugar in everything and we are all glutinous pigs.
That kind of growth is not manageable. We ate our way into collapse.
cray cray getto folk gotta get they mcdouble even if they gotta use food stamps
Please don't make generalizations. Over-eating/too much sugar is not the only cause of diabetes.
You ever look around you at all the over weight people walking around? ...and, even more sadly, so many over weight kids.....so a diabetes epidemic should come as no surprise.
I would love to see the numbers if they took out the veterans exposed to agent orange.
Veterans exposed to Agent Orange are able to get disability benifits because the link between agent orange and adult onset diabetes is 600 times that of the average non exposed person. So while obesity is an issue and probably contributes, I would like to see the numbers with Agent Orange exposed Veterans removed.
Agent Orange is a cop out, unions and commies sued Monsanto because they were an easy target, Monsanto does a million times more for the country than union punks and commie libs
I honestly think that the numbers - based on what was provided in the link - are still pretty high. Given the numbers, there is not a single state with less than 4% of the population with diabetes.
However, I would like to take your suggestion and also exclude most LADA (adult onset/type 1.5) and Type I patients. That leaves Type II growth, and while the numbers might still be high, maybe they would no be so damn absurd.
Hi, Nucky. Thanks for joining the thread.
this is very interesting. i would like to subscribe to your newsletter.
i caught the agent orange.
I wish I was not out of upvotes.
Tina have diabetes?
Ignorance is amazing.
Type 1 diabetes is also up 5+% annually and has nothing to do with weight/what you eat/etc.
You are a giant toolbag just like the piece of shit in your pic
This little kid is literally the stay puff marshmallow man. Someone needs to kill his parents and help him. His skin looks like a sweater of goo.
