You may not know that the incidence of diabetes has reached epidemic proportions in the United States. Over 27 million people have the disease. Astonishingly, nearly one-third of all diabetics don’t know they have this potentially debilitating disease. Another 79 million American’s are at risk of developing the disease and only 10% know they are at risk.
