In the United States, roughly one in five adolescents and one in four young adults have prediabetes, according to a study published in JAMA Pediatrics.
“These findings are alarming and should be a call to action for health care providers and parents in the U.S.,” Linda J. Andes, PhD, mathematical statistician at the CDC’s Division of Diabetes Translation, told Infectious Diseases in Children. “While we expected to find prediabetes in adolescents, we were surprised to learn how common this condition has become, especially in adolescents and young adults with obesity.”
