The future health of the U.S. is in peril due to a frightening rise in diabetes. Findings from the Nation’s largest study of diabetes in youth paint an alarming picture of disease on the rise among every racial and ethnic group studied.
“Diabetes is one of the most common chronic diseases in children and adolescents and its occurrence is rising. The need for effective interventions to prevent new cases of both type 1 and type 2 diabetes is urgent. At the same time, we need to assure that every child with diabetes receives the best available care that we know will prevent them from developing kidney failure, sight-threatening retinopathy or premature cardiovascular diseases,” says Ann Albright, Ph.D., director of the Division of Diabetes Translation at the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The survey, reported in Diabetes Care, found that the U.S. rates for diabetes are significantly higher than in Europe.
