Diabetes disease continues to be on the rise in our nation. According to the CDC in 2020 there was an estimated 34.2 million cases and even more surprising is that 8.5 million people are undiagnosed. Diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death in the United States and the number ONE cause of kidney failure, lower-limb amputations, and adult blindness. Diabetes is not a respecter of people, it impacts all social, economic, and ethnic backgrounds.
