  • Around 420 million people have diabetes worldwide; 
  • About 1.5 million Americans are diagnosed with diabetes every year;
  • Diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death in the United States;
  • People with diabetes can live long and healthy lives if they are diagnosed and treated correctly;
  • Unfortunately, animals can also have diabetes. Diabetes in animals has the same causes as in humans - genetics, diet, and lack of exercise;
  • Type 3 diabetes is a title that has been proposed for Alzheimer’s disease which results from resistance to insulin in the brain. It is not yet a medical term or a recognized condition, but is a term now used in research looking into the causes of Alzheimer’s disease;
  • Type 2 diabetes is more common than type 1 diabetes
  • Most diabetes deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries.
