Ok, so now that we know the main contributing factors, what are they saying that helps prevent us from getting this expensive disease?
And by expensive, I mean expensive! $$$
We are talking $245 BILLION Buck-er-oo’s in medical costs, and lost work and wages for those diagnosed.
To put that into a little bit of a better perspective for ya, it pretty much represents medical costs being twice as high for people with diabetes then people that do not have it.
