In the United States, about 1 in 11 or 1 in 12 people have diabetes. The most common kind of diabetes is type 2 diabetes – which represents about 90-95% of all cases. Even though about 1 in 11 or 12 people have it, that statistic changes a lot depending on your risk factors for diabetes. For any given person or population, the prevalence might be much higher.
