Diabetes comes with a host of complications and costs. While Type 1 diabetes is impossible to prevent, Type 2 — the more common — is completely preventable. More than 30 million Americans have some form of the disease, and 90% to 95% of them are Type 2 and probably could have avoided the consequences, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It is most common in adults over the age of 45, but it can also affect teens and, more and more often, kids, each case coming with what the American Diabetes Association calls an average $16,752 in medical costs yearly. (That's 2.3 times higher medical costs than those without.) If you could do something to prevent diabetes, wouldn't you want to start today?
