  • No one knows for sure what causes diabetes, but we do know that the number of Americans diagnosed with the disease is at a record high. According to the American Diabetes Association, approximately 24 million people in the United States have diabetes. 

    While an estimated 17.9 million have been diagnosed, 5.7 million people are unaware that they have diabetes.

    If you are among the millions of Americans with diabetes, you know that the key to successfully managing the disease is education. Knowing what to eat, how to control blood sugar and cholesterol and which medications to take are all important parts of managing diabetes. Certified diabetes educators at Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia’s Gutman Diabetes Institute can help you answer these questions and keep your diabetes under control.
