5 States with the Lowest Diabetes Rates in America

Below you can find our rankings for the 5 states with the lowest diabetes rates in America. These states have managed to control what is a growing epidemic and if other states don’t follow suit, this could cause chaos within the US. Please see our methodology and data sources here.

5. Minnesota: 7.6%

Females in Minnesota have a much lower rate of diabetes than the US average, which is why the state ranks so highly in our list. In fact, Minnesota beats the US average on nearly every demographic, bar Native Americans.

4. Vermont: 7.3%

Vermont has an extensive Diabetes Program, which is the basis for having a low rate of diabetes. In the demographic of above 65 years old, Vermont outperforms the US by 5.9 percentage points which is amazing.
