On June 14th, 2003, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that 1 in 3 American children born in 2000 will develop diabetes at some point in their lives. The majority of these cases will be Adult Onset Diabetes, or Type 2 Diabetes, which is strongly associated with obesity and a lack of exercise. According to Dr. K.M Venkat Narayan, Chief if the CDC’s Diabetes Epidemiology section, “Over the last ten years, the proportion of people with diabetes has gone up almost 40% between 1990 and 1999” and he attributes this to an increasingly sedentary and overweight population.

Based on Information culled from the National Health Interview Survey in which 300,000 Americans were interviewed between 1984 and 2000, if trends continue, a girl born in 2000 has a 39% chance of developing diabetes in her lifetime and a boy born the same year has a 33% chance of developing it. The rates for Hispanics are even higher. A Hispanic male has a 45% chance of developing diabetes and a Hispanic female has a 53% chance. Additionally, a man diagnosed with diabetes at age 40 will lose approximately 12 years of life and a female diagnosed at age 40 will lose 15 years.

Diabetes is significant because it stems from the body’s inability to use insulin correctly. This leads to excessively high blood sugar levels which can increase the risk of blindness, kidney disease, and amputations and can undermine other body conditions when treating patients.
