From Houston, Texas, USA:

What is the current, estimated or accurate, number of people in the US who have diabetes? I have it myself and was just wondering how many others there are.


The very best answer is at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Look at their Diabetes and Public Health Resource. Also, the American Diabetes Association is a good site.

The numbers are only going up. Check with them.
