Internet of Health & Prevention
According to the Centers for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC), over 100 million Americans have diabetes or prediabetes, the latter meaning they could develop diabetes type 2 within five years. The National Health Interview Survey recently released by the CDC shows that Americans are not getting enough exercise. Only 51.7% of American adults met the Physical Activity Guidelines for aerobic activity and only 21.7% met the Physical Activity Guidelines for muscle strengthening. Less than 3 percent of Americans meet the basic qualifications for a “healthy lifestyle,” according to a new study published in Mayo Clinic Proceedings. Meanwhile healthcare costs and insurance premiums and deductibles continue to climb at an alarming rate, while healthcare demand outpaces delivery.
