Diabetes is a disease in which the body does not produce or properly use insulin. Insulin is a hormone that is needed to convert sugar, starches and other food into energy needed for daily life. The cause of diabetes continues to be a mystery, although both genetics and environmental factors such as obesity and lack of exercise appear to play roles.
According to the American Diabetic Association, "There are 25.8 million children and adults in the United States, or 8.3% of the United States population, who have diabetes. While an estimated 18.8 million have been diagnosed, unfortunately, 7.0 million people are unaware that they have the disease."
