March 22 is Diabetes Alert Day, dedicated to raising awareness about type 2 diabetes, its risk factors, and its prevention. Type 2 diabetes, which accounts for 90%–95% of all cases of diagnosed diabetes in U.S. adults, might be prevented through lifestyle changes, such as losing weight and increasing physical activity (1,2). In the United States, 86 million adults have prediabetes, putting them at increased risk for developing type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. Only 10% of adults with prediabetes know they have it (1,3).
