Over 26.8 million Americans are affected by diabetes. People in South Texas are increasingly feeling the effects of diabetes as approximately 86,000 people in the Coastal Bend battle diabetes and prediabetes every day. Many of them don't even know it! It is estimated that one in three Americans will have diabetes by the year 2050, if current trends continue.
