As a diabetic, we need to do more for prevention as well as increase education of newly diagnosed. The better a person is able to control their diabetes, the lower the overall costs. And we definitely need to get metformin the hands of pre-diabetics as an "on label" use of the drug.

According to the American Diabetes Association, nearly 26 million Americans have either type 1 or type 2 diabetes, and an additional 79 million have prediabetes. Those numbers are also increasing each year – the CDC estimates that if current trends continue, one in three US adults will have diabetes by 2050.
