About Defeat Diabetes Foundation
The Defeat Diabetes Foundation, Inc. was incorporated November 21,
1991 under the laws of the State of Florida as a non-profit corporation.
The Foundation is supported by concerned individuals and is operated by contracted, salaried and volunteer services. Substantially all of its revenue is received as contributions.
Also, as part of the Defeat Diabetes Foundation "Mission", we conduct ongoing research studies evaluating such topics as diet, fitness, exercise programs, age, sex, gender, geological demographics, etc. of people with diabetes, and those who do not have the disease (see our "Research Form" as an example). The findings of these studies may be important in determining risk factors associated with acquiring diabetes, as well as a potential means to lessen the debilitating effects the disease has on the body. Please keep in mind that the term "Diabetes Research" can, and does refer to many different types of research related to diabetes, but not specifically meant to infer "Diabetes Cure or Prevention Research".
Through various Defeat Diabetes® Awareness Programs which promote increased knowledge of the warning signs of diabetes, more people are being tested for the disease. And information such as that provided in this web site is more important now than ever before. This past year alone we mailed approximately 5 million pieces of informational material to the general public. We are committed to continuing this work for the 10 million Americans, and the estimated 75 million people world-wide with the disease and don't know they have it.
