According to the American Diabetes Association, here in New York an estimated 2 million people, or 12.5% of the population now have diabetes. Of these, 517,000 of them have diabetes and simply do not know it. In addition, 5,412,000 people in New York or a staggering 36.2% of the population, have prediabetes. Every year an estimated 66,000 people in New York are diagnosed with diabetes.
