Iowans are increasingly feeling the effects of diabetes as thousands of people suffer from the disease, and many others may have diabetes and not know it! It is estimated that one out of every three children born after 2050 in the United States will be directly affected by diabetes. That is why the American Diabetes Association’s Des Moines office is so committed to educating the public about how to stop diabetes and support those living with the disease.
