  • Data are % ± SEM (n in millions, calculated using the 2000 U.S. population). Adults with IGT (2-hour glucose concentration 140-199 mg/dl) and/or IFG (fasting glucose concentration 110–125 mg/dl were considered to have prediabetes (12). Also included in analysis were people meeting DPP criteria for IGT (9) *Estimates include those of racial and ethnic groups not listed separately.
