Diabetes is a serious and chronic disease that occurs when the body does not have the ability to produce insulin, or enough insulin, to metabolize glucose. There is no known cure for the disease but research continues to make progress. According to the American Diabetes Association, diabetes affects 25.8 million children and adults in the United States. For people over the age of 65 years old, 10.9 million, or 26.9%, have been diagnosed with the disease. Early diagnosis is important so appropriate diabetic care and management can be initiated. Some complications include heart disease and stroke (68%), high blood pressure (67%), blindness (4.4%), kidney disease, nervous system disease (neuropathy) (60%-70%), and amputation. In order to reduce the complications listed above, management of this disease is essential. Modern day approaches to managing Type 2 Diabetes primarily rely upon dietary and lifestyle choices, often combined with regular ongoing blood glucose level monitoring. Management of Type 1 Diabetes also involves the usage of insulin with meals.
