Indianapolis Residents View Economic Challenges as Significant Barrier to Properly Managing Type 2 Diabetes
Date:5/12/2009

oth diabetes and obesity are growing national epidemics, affecting millions in the United States and worldwide. Recognizing the impact of these and other chronic diseases on the American healthcare system, the Obama administration is making them a primary health focus. These diseases also have a significant impact in Indiana, where over eight percent of the population has diabetes and more than six in 10 are overweight or obese.

About the survey

The phone survey assessed the behaviors, opinions and attitudes of 100 people with type 2 diabetes living in Indianapolis, and was conducted by Yankelovich, part of The Futures Company in March 2009. The survey was commissioned by TCOYD, a not-for-profit 501(c)3 diabetes education organization that offers programs to inform, motivate and empower participants to take control of their diabetes, and funded by Amylin Pharmaceuticals as part of the Harmony for Health initiative.

About Taking Control of Your Diabetes (TCOYD)

Founded in 1995, Taking Control of Your Diabetes(TM) (TCOYD) is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 diabetes education organization that offers programs to inform, motivate and empower participants to take control of their diabetes. Steven V. Edelman, MD, founder and director of TCOYD, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 15. Edelman, an internationally recognized leader in diabetes treatment, research and education, says, "It is my conviction that health care in this country will improve when the people living with diabetes themselves are informed and empowered to take an active role in their own disease." Dr. Edelman practices and teaches at the VA Medical Center in San Diego, and the University of California, San Diego.
