Diabetes affects your entire body and increases your risk for many serious health problems, but you can prevent or delay complications.
More than 30 million people in the United States have diabetes. That is about 1 in every 10 people. Diabetes occurs when your blood sugar (glucose) is too high. Over time, having high blood sugar can cause serious health problems. You can prevent or delay these problems by eating healthy meals, being physically active, monitoring your blood sugar, and taking the medicine your doctor prescribes. Although there is no cure, millions of people with diabetes enjoy long, full lives, and you can, too.
