I am participating in Ride4Diabetes event again to raise funds to combat a preventable debilitating epidemic called Diabetes. The economic cost of Diabetes in USA is staggering; 2017 numbers are below.
Total Estimated cost $327 bil
-- Direct Medical Costs $237 bil
-- Lost Productivity $90 bil
Avg. Med. Expense of a diabetic $16,750 /Year
-- Attributable to Diabetes $9,600 /Year
Affects 1 in every 11 Americans: 30 mil people
Pre-diabetic & at risk of Type2 Diabetes: 84 mil people
-- 90% of them don’t even know that.
277,000 Premature Deaths Due to Diabetes.
Every 21 Sec, someone is diagnosed with Diabetes.
A diagnosed person spends 2.3 times more than Avg.
