Diabetes affects over 30 million Americans and is the 7th leading cause of death in Florida. Type 2 diabetes, a condition that happens when the body is no longer able to respond to insulin in the blood stream normally, can increase the chances of having neuropathy (numbness in the feet), high blood pressure, stroke, kidney disease, and diabetic ketoacidosis (a condition where high levels of ketones in the blood poison the body). Type 2 diabetes is preventable, but it is also manageable when people know they have it.
