Are Complications of Diabetes Common?

Read Transcript

Depending on the populations we look at, we've worked in underserved communities here that have poor access to health, and go on with high blood sugars for years and years and years, and I'll take off their socks and shoes, and find ulcers on their feet or they've had a heart attack, and because it's a silent heart attack they don't even know it, and they've had it.

So we are finding complications in populations that are taking better care of their health, it's less, but we're also diagnosing diabetes more frequently, and more, and more people are developing diabetes and at a younger age.
