DID YOU KNOW…
- 1. Since 2010, diabetes remains the 7th leading cause of death in the United States
- 29.1 million people or 9.3% of the U.S. population have diabetes.
- 21.0 million people diagnosed
- 8.1 million people undiagnosed
Essentially, 27.8% of all people with diabetes in the U.S. remain undiagnosed, and thus, untreated.
WHAT IS DIABETES?
Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes. It is a condition in which blood glucose (sugar) levels rise higher than normal and the body does not use insulin properly. This is called insulin resistance.
At first, your pancreas tries to keep up with the demand and makes extra insulin to make up for it. But, over time your pancreas becomes tired and cannot make enough insulin to keep the body’s blood glucose at normal levels.
And when glucose builds up in the blood instead of going into cells, it can cause type 2 diabetes or pre-diabetes. If left untreated , diabetes can lead to serious health problems involving the eyes, kidneys, nerves, and circulatory system (the heart & blood vessels).
