With November being National Diabetes Awareness Month and Americans collectively spending nearly $200 billion per year on obesity-related health costs, the personal-finance website WalletHub today released its report on 2017's Fattest States in America, along with interesting stats about diabetes in its Facts & Statistics infographic.

To determine which states contribute the most to America’s overweight and obesity problem, WalletHub’s analysts compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia across 19 key metrics. They range from share of overweight and obese population to sugary-beverage consumption among adolescents to obesity-related health care costs.

Here are some highlights from each report:

Obesity & Overweight Problem in Tennessee (1=Fattest; 25=Avg.)
  • 9th – % of Obese Adults
  • 4th – % of Overweight Children
  • 5th – % of Obese Children
  • 7th – % of Physically Inactive Adults
  • 3rd – % of Adults with High Cholesterol
