Diabetes affects about 30 million Americans, and a condition known as prediabetes affects another 86 million, according to the American Diabetes Association. About 5 percent of diabetes cases are Type 1, once known as juvenile diabetes, in which the body doesn’t produce insulin,
which is needed to help the body transform sugar to energy. The more common Type 2 diabetes occurs when the body builds up resistance to insulin, which then interferes with the body’s ability to process sugar.
Diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death in the U.S., and the condition can lead to heart disease, foot problems, stroke, kidney disease, eye disease and some skin conditions. The disease’s symptoms are difficult to detect, and the best way to monitor for diabetes is with a
