Diabetes and its precursor, prediabetes, are major health problems in the United States. A recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates 40 percent of Americans will be diagnosed with diabetes at some point in their lifetime. Type 2 diabetes, formerly called adult-onset diabetes, accounts for 90 to 95 percent of all diabetes cases in the U.S.
