It is estimated that there are just over 30million individuals currently living with diabetes in the United Sates alone, and that close to 24 percent of all these individuals remain undiagnosed. Diabetes is a lifestyle-related disease and it is caused by the lack of insulin which is needed to regulate blood sugar. Diabetes can be traced back to obesity, poor food choices, lack of exercise and metabolic syndrome which is fast becoming a major health crisis in the developed world. Left untreated, diabetes can cause tissue necrosis necessitating amputations, heart disease, diabetic coma, and even death. Therefore, diabetes must not only be treated in a timely manner, but it must also be diagnosed as soon as is possible so that the patient has a fighting chance and can either make the needed health and lifestyle changes, or if it’s a bit too late, get started on a course of insulin, whether by pill, injection or via patch.
