This Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) brief examines data on diabetes prevalence in New York State adults in 2011. National data indicate almost 40% of the U.S. population has some type of hyperglycemic condition. Projections based on national trends suggest that one in three Americans will develop diabetes in their lifetime.

The brief, released by the New York State Department of Health, presents key facts and findings for adults diagnosed with diabetes in New York State. An estimated 1.5 million adult New Yorkers have been diagnosed with diabetes.
