About Diabetes

The body is an interdependent network. When the pancreas does not produce enough insulin or the body does not use this hormone efficiently, the body's cells starve for energy. Learn more about diabetes.

Symptoms, Diagnosis & Monitoring of Diabetes

Many people have diabetes and do not even know it. Even if it's not diagnosed, diabetes can be causing damage to the body. Diabetes can only be diagnosed by a health care provider, so see your doctor regularly.

Why Diabetes Matters

At least 68% of people with diabetes aged 65 and older die of some form of heart disease and 16% die from stroke. There are plenty of reasons to take steps to prevent and manage diabetes.

Prevention & Treatment of Diabetes

Adopting a healthy lifestyle is a critical part of preventing or delaying the onset of diabetes and, for those already diagnosed with the disease, keeping it under control. In some cases, medications may be part of the treatment plan.

Understand Your Risk for Diabetes

Family history, race/ethnicity, and age can increase your risk for diabetes, but are beyond your control. Eliminate modifiable risks like being overweight/obese or physically inactive to improve your odds against the disease.

Diabetes Tools & Resources

From personal stories to delicious recipes, quizzes and tools to help you monitor your blood glucose, blood pressure, cholesterol, medications and more, there's a wealth of information in store for you.
