Learn About Diabetes

Uncontrolled diabetes radically damages your health, life expectancy and quality of life.

Uncontrolled diabetes:
  • Is the leading cause of blindness, kidney dialysis and leg / foot amputations.
  • Significantly increases your risk of heart disease and stroke.
  • Is the 5th leading cause of death; 3rd in some high-risk ethnic groups.

There is good news! You can control your diabetes and avoid or reduce your risk of complications! Research shows that keeping your blood sugar normal and controlling your blood pressure and lipids (cholesterol and triglycerides) dramatically reduces the risks associated with uncontrolled diabetes.
