Illinoisans are increasingly feeling the effects of diabetes. Today, over 1,300,000 people in Illinois have diabetes, or 12.8% of the population. The American Diabetes Association can provide resources for you and your family about all types of diabetes as well as information for caregivers and others affected indirectly by the disease.
The American Diabetes Association's Illinois office is committed to educating our communities about how to Stop Diabetes and supporting those living with the disease.
We are here to help!
Become a Diabetes Advocate!
Life isn't fair for people with diabetes. First, there is the simple fact of coping with a chronic illness. Second, there are the barriers that prevent people with diabetes from enjoying the same opportunities at the rest of the population. Our Advocacy efforts work to bring down the barriers and fund critical diabetes research. Take action and become a Diabetes Advocate today!
