According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 1.9 million adults in the United States are diagnosed with diabetes every year. The disease affects more than 8% of the United States population, and that number is growing. It’s also the seventh leading cause of death—but it doesn't have to be a death sentence.
