I found this interesting chart while surfing for articles.

It shows a calculated risk for a person depending on several risk factors. Although it is developed with Westerners in mind, it generally can be applied to us as well.

My risk of developing diabetes is 0.2%. Interesting figure. How about you?

7.9% of the United States population is suffering from a form of Diabetes. That is over 23 million people! Now, more than ever, it is important for organizations such as yourself. We here, at (a site dedicated towards disease and their treatments), believe in the work you do and would like to coincide for the fight against diabetes. If you could, please list us as a resource or host our social book mark button, it would be much appreciated. Separately, we can make advancements, but together we can find a cure.
If you need more information please email me back with the subject line as your URL.

Thank You,
