Early detection and treatment of diabetes and its complications are critical, not only to improve health outcomes but also to reduce costs associated with the disease. According to the American Diabetes Association, the total direct and indirect cost of diagnosed diabetes in 2012 was $245 billion, a 41 percent increase in just five years.
