Diabetes affects 23.6 million children and adults in the US. Diabetes is a disease in which the body does not produce or properly use insulin, a hormone that is needed to convert sugar, starches and other food into energy needed for daily life. It was the seventh leading cause of death listed on U.S. death certificates in 2006. For more information please visit our website at diabetes.org.
