Diabetes Care

One in every three people born today will develop diabetes during their lifetime. In Illinois, 500,000 people are diagnosed every year. Although it is a lifelong, incurable disease, careful management can slow its progression.

  • Eye problems that can lead to blindness
  • Nerve damage, which can lead to infections and/or amputations
  • Kidney damage, which can lead to kidney failure and dialysis
  • High blood pressure, which can contribute to heart attack and strokes
  • Stroke and heart disease (two out of three people with diabetes may die of heart disease or stroke)
  • Skin complications and increased risk of infections
  • Ketoacidosis, which are high levels of ketones that can poison the body
  • Pregnancy issues (increased monitoring is necessary to prevent complications
