Diabetes is one of Americans' leading killers and the number one cause
of kidney failure, non-traumatic lower limb amputations, and new cases
of blindness among adults in the US. And the epidemic is growing quickly
– if we don't act soon, one in three Americans will have diabetes by 2050.
No one can better exlain the impact of diabetes than the physicians, nurses, research scientists, diabetes educators, and other health care professionals who see the impact of diabetes every day.
If we hope to stop the diabetes epidemic, we must advance research,
support prevention programs and fight against discrimination.
