Approximately 422 million people in the world suffer from some type of diabetes today. More than 30 million people in the US alone have some sort of diabetes – and a huge number of these individuals are unaware of their condition, which can be managed and treated to prevent some of the serious complications that may arise including amputation, loss of vision, and nerve damage. Getting tested regularly and being aware of the most important facts and fictions surrounding diabetes can help raise awareness of this potentially deadly disease.
