  • Only data from 2018 and 2021 was utilized to determine trends over a four-year period.
  • The number of patients diagnosed with diabetes from 2018 to 2021 was compared by state.
  • Results were ranked from greatest to least increase in diagnoses.
  • Florida was excluded from the rankings due to missing 2021 data.
