Diabetes in Vermont

In Vermont, diabetes is a serious health condition that affects over 40,000 adults, and is one of the leading causes of death resulting from a chronic disease. People who have diabetes, and those who are at risk (prediabetes) are often undiagnosed, which means that the actual prevalence of diabetes and prediabetes among Vermonters is likely higher than measured.

Many chronic diseases, including prediabetes and type 2 diabetes, are preventable. Not all diabetes is preventable however. Learn about individual risk and how the Vermont Department of Health is helping individuals prevent diabetes and prediabetes and helping those with it to better manage their conditions.
