Description

“The percentage of Americans who suffer from diabetes (type 1 and type 2) has increased from 5.1% in 1997 to 9.3% in 2013. While this presents a large market of consumers for products and services specifically aimed to treat diabetes, it also indicates a need for education and solutions to help prevent diabetes from being diagnosed in the first place.”
