The American Diabetes Association (ADA) estimates that nearly 26 million Americans have diabetes. Out of that, 18.8 million have already been diagnosed while 7 million people are still undiagnosed. The ADA also estimates that as many as 1 in 3 Americans will have diabetes by the year 2050 if present trends continue.
