Diabetes Report Card 

This Diabetes Report Card shows the current status of diabetes in the United States.

Diabetes Report Card[PDF – 5MB] is published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) based on The Catalyst to Better Diabetes Care in the Patient Protection and Affordability Care Act. This report provides current information on the status of diabetes in the United States. It includes information and data about diabetes, prediabetes, preventive care practices, risk factors, quality of care, outcomes, progress made towards meeting national diabetes goals, and, to the extent possible, national and state trends.

What’s New

The 2017 Diabetes Report Card highlights encouraging trends and ongoing challenges:

  • The rate of new cases of diabetes among US adults has decreased.
  • The rate of new cases of diabetes among children and adolescents has increased.
  • The first national prediabetes awareness campaign was launched to encourage people to find out their risk. More than 1 million have completed the prediabetes risk test.
  • New diabetes resources have been developed to help employers, health insurers, and states.
