Diabetes is the fastest growing disease in America; nearly 21 million children and adults have diabetes in the U.S., and another 54 million are on the verge of developing the disease.

While not all types of diabetes are preventable, we can improve the lives of those who have the disease while searching for a cure. Diabetes does not stop at diagnosis and a

treatment regimen. It can cause many complications, including stroke, kidney failure, heart disease and amputation.
