Oklahomans are increasingly feeling the effects of diabetes as thousands of people suffer from the disease, and many others may have diabetes and don't know it! It is estimated that one out of every three children born after 2000 in the United States will be directly affected by diabetes. In Oklahoma approximately 390,201 people in Oklahoma, or 12.8% of the adult population, have diabetes. In addition, 1,040,000 people in Oklahoma 34.9% of the adult population have prediabetes.
That is why the American Diabetes Association Oklahoma office is so committed to educating the public about how to stop diabetes and support those living with the disease.
