The Diabetes Diagnosis Information Page is a collaborative project of NeedyMeds and the Diabetes Foundation. It is intended to provide educational information and healthcare savings resources for those living with or caring for someone living with this diagnosis.

Diabetes is a group of diseases characterized by high blood glucose levels that result from defects in the body's ability to produce and/or use insulin. According to the 2022 National Diabetes Statistics Report, as of 2019, 11.3% of the U.S. population has diabetes. In fact, diabetes remains the leading cause of kidney failure, blindness and amputations, and a major cause of heart disease and stroke. Although diabetes is not curable it is certainly treatable.
