Diabetes

The percentage of people with diabetes, a condition that causes problems with how your body handles sugar, is rising. More than 25.8 million children and adults in the United States — 8.3% of the population — have diabetes. It’s estimated that 1 in 10 people in Michigan have a form of diabetes.
