three markets -- St. Charles, IL, Minneapolis, MN, and Jacksonville, FL. Young people with type 1 diabetes, who often have the most urgent need for care, will explore and discover new possibilities about themselves and their diabetes while connecting with other children like them through Planet D.

"Our support of the American Diabetes Association is another important way in which we are building relationships with our customers," said Mark Doerr, vice president, Kmart Pharmacy. "We are pleased to do our part in helping the nearly 21 million Americans living with this disease and we thank our customers for joining us in this effort."

Nearly 21 million children and adults in the United States have diabetes, a disease characterized by high blood glucose (sugar) levels that result from defects in the body's ability to produce and/or use insulin. Another 54 million Americans are estimated to be at high risk for developing this disease. Diabetes can lead to severely debilitating or fatal complications, such as heart disease, blindness, kidney disease, and amputations.
