Diabetes
is the classic 21st century disease. Known as a medical condition for thousands of years, it has risen in Western countries to almost epidemic proportions in the last 50 years. According to the American Diabetic Association,
7% of the American population, 20.8 million children and adults, currently suffer from various forms of diabetes.
At least one third of this number, or 6.2 million people, are undiagnosed, and unaware of the damage that complications of diabetes can cause.

The term diabetes actually includes several different syndromes, each with different risk factors and causes.
As research continues, more sub-types are discovered, and treatments become more specific, with many clinics specialising in diabetic treatment and prevention.
