According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 29.1 million people in the U.S. (nearly 10% of the population) suffer from diabetes.
By 2030, the World Health Organization projects diabetes to be the seventh leading cause of death in 2030 with 552 million adults worldwide living with the disease.
In 2019, the diabetes pharmaceutical market is estimated to reach $471 billion.
Consumers are increasingly taking a proactive approach to seeking care, treating disease symptoms and enacting preventative measures to combat diabetes, chronic pain and other illnesses.

What is Diabetes?

Diabetes is a disease that occurs when your blood glucose, also called blood sugar, is too high. Blood glucose is your main source of energy and comes from the food you eat. Insulin, a hormone made by the pancreas, helps glucose from food get into your cells to be used for energy. Sometimes your body doesn’t make enough or any insulin or doesn’t use insulin well. Glucose then stays in your blood and doesn’t reach your cells.

Over time, having too much glucose in your blood can cause health problems. Although diabetes has no cure, you can take steps to manage your diabetes and stay healthy.
People sometimes call diabetes “a touch of sugar” or “borderline diabetes.”
These terms suggest that someone doesn’t really have diabetes or has a less serious case, but every case of diabetes is serious.
