Diabetes Rates Decline

PositiveTips

Analysis of the National Health Interview Survey in the U.S. now suggests  a potential slowing in the diabetes epidemic. Diabetes (type 1 and 2) rose sharply each year between 1990 and 2008, but has leveled off between 2008 and 2012. The researchers suggest this new trend may be related to a recent slowing in obesity rates. However, this was not found among certain populations, including Hispanics and blacks.
