Californians 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 2000 in the United States will be directly affected by diabetes.
That is why the American Diabetes Association's Costa Mesa office is so committed to educating the public about how to stop diabetes and support those living with the disease.
We are here to help.
