American Diabetes Association

What is diabetes?

Diabetes is a disease that negatively affects the levels of insulin, glucose, and carbohydrates in the body. It impairs the body’s ability to respond to or produce the hormone insulin. As a result, the infected individual has an abnormal metabolism of carbohydrates, as well as increased levels of glucose in their urine and bloodstream.

How does the American Diabetes Association help?

Studies show that nearly 30 million people battle diabetes daily. Therefore, the American Diabetes Association is dedicated to making a change. This nonprofit charity works to prevent and cure diabetes by providing research, advocacy, and information to those who need it. Additionally, this organization hosts events to help bring awareness and raise the funds necessary to make a difference.
