Texans 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 Houston 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.
Our advocacy efforts include supporting government funding for diabetes research and programs, ensuring access to health care, promoting the prevention of type 2 diabetes, combating discrimination and much more. Our Advocacy improves the lives of people living with diabetes while giving them the chance to raise their voice. Become a diabetes advocate.

Wellness Lives Here
Wellness Lives Here will educate and motivate people to adopt healthful habits to reduce the impact of obesity and type 2 diabetes in this country. For some, it will mean fewer sick days and higher productivity. For others, it will mean looking and feeling better. For everyone, the result will be more empowered Americans who are better able to control, delay or stop diabetes and related health problems.
