Please join me in supporting the American Diabetes Association fight to find a cure for diabetes. I am running this in honor of all my family, friends and patients who live with diabetes.
29.1 million Americans have diabetes,
1.25 million children and adults with Type 1 diabetes (autoimmune).
8.1 million Americans are undiagnosed.
Pre-diabetes which proceeds Type 2 diabetes (previously called adult onset now with the obesity epidemic many children and adolescents are diagnosed) has increased in age 20 and above to 89 million. The progression from pre-diabetes to Type 2 diabetes can be prevented.
A recent study by UCLA showed 33% of young adults in California have pre-diabetes. See attached link to Sac Bee story. http://www.sacbee.com/news/local/health-and-medicine/healthy-choices/article65133632.html
