Type 2 Diabetes usually strikes people after age 35. The early signs are subtle, so a third of those with the disease don?t even know they have it. They are unable to properly convert food to energy, allowing sugar levels to build up, which causes serious complications over time, if not treated.
Many go undiagnosed and untreated, increasing the risks for premature heart disease, blindness, chronic kidney disease, nerve damage, skin and foot problems that lead to amputations. We aim to help these individuals become more aware about diabetes and do a better job of managing the disease if they have it.
