According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 29 million Americans have diabetes and 86 million more have prediabetes. Now considered an epidemic, these two groups comprise about 45 percent of the U.S. workforce, and with indirect costs reaching $69 billion annually, it’s critical for employers to determine best practices in care and treatment.

The results of this study may change the way employers approach their health care strategies related to this condition.
