Diabetes Prevention Support Center

It is a well known fact that the prevalence of diabetes is increasing in the United States. From 1980 through 2004, the number of Americans with diabetes more than doubled. Currently, over 25 million Americans have diabetes, with about one-fourth undiagnosed. Even more disturbing are estimates that an additional 79 million people have pre-diabetes. Many of these individuals will go on to develop type 2 diabetes.

At the Diabetes Prevention Support Center (DPSC) of the University of Pittsburgh, we recognize the seriousness of the diabetes epidemic and the health problems that accompany it. We are committed to providing education, training and support to health care providers and to people who are at risk for developing diabetes and its complications.
