Uncommon Facts About Diabetes

WASHINGTON, October 23, 2018 -- November is the start of National Diabetes Awareness Month. Spreading awareness of this disease is important to do year-round because currently more than 100 million people are affected by diabetes, and this number continues to skyrocket.​ USA Medical offers assistance by providing discounts on medications prescribed for diabetes through its customized prescription savings programs in all 50 states including: Texas Prescription Assistance Program, Florida Prescription Assistance Program and California Prescription Assistance Program

USA Medical shares some of the most uncommon facts about diabetes to help spread awareness of this disease that affects 1 in 4 people in America today.

  1. Type 2 diabetes has no symptoms.
    • Factors like diet and a sedentary lifestyle can contribute to the development of diabetes.
  2. Diabetes may lead to more serious issues.
    • Untreated or mistreated diabetes may lead to life-altering conditions, like blindness.
  3. 95% of diabetic cases are type 2 diabetes.
    • Unlike type 1, in which the pancreas produces little or no insulin, type 2 diabetes develops when the body struggles to process insulin. (Weight loss is recommended to help reverse the condition.)
