Diabetes Basics (American Diabetes Association)

Millions of people around the world live with diabetes or know someone living with diabetes. Regardless of the type of diabetes, diabetes isn’t yet a curable disease. However, it is a very treatable disease, and no matter how frightening, annoying, and frustrating it can be, people with diabetes can live long, healthy, and happy lives. The American Diabetes Association's goal is to provide you the information, tools and resources to help make that happen.
