How many people are affected by diabetes or pre-diabetes?

Fact: 115 million people in the US are insulin-resistant

"In the United States, 29 million adults (1 in 11) have type 2 diabetes and another 86 million (more than 1 in 3) have prediabetes.

 
86 million + 29 million = 115 million people out of about 300 million in the U.S.
 
In other terms, approximately 40% of US adults already have some degree of insulin resistance."
 
-Dr. James DiNiconlantonio
