There are few health conditions more widespread than diabetes, which touches one out of every two Americans either directly or indirectly. Yet diabetes is equally hidden in America, where 5.7 million people don't even know they have it, and another 57 million live with pre-diabetes.

Diabetes costs the country $174 billion annually. According to a recent study in the American Journal of Public Health, avoiding diabetes can save the average American $34,483 a year and, more importantly, result in more than three extra years of life.
