Nationwide Outreach ATLANTA--More than 12 million Americans have diabetes - and almost half of them don't know it. During November, the American Diabetes Asso- ciation (ADA) has planned nationwide educational activities to bring the disease to the public's attention. Since 1982, ADA worked with the U.S. Congress and the White House to designate No- vember as National Dia- betes Month. For every one person diagnosed with diabetes, there is someone walk- ing around undiagnosed - that translates to over 5 million people unaware of their condition," explained Dr. Anthony Karpas, Presi- dent of the Georgia Affi- liate of the ADA, "For them, finding out about diabetes really is a matter of life and death." Nationwide, approxi- mately 6.5 million people have been diagnosed with diabetes, a disease in which the body does not produce or respond to insulin, a hormone needed for dally life. The resulting high blood sugar can se- verely damage the heart, blood vessels, kidneys, eyes and nerves. If leR untreated, diabetes can lead to death. "It's imperative that we inform the public of the devastating effect diabe- tes can have if not detect- ed or treated properly," Dr. Karpas stated. "Many don't realize they have the disease until they deve- lop one of its life-threaten- ing complications - and that is often too late," Dr. Karpas added. :Auto Rental, Inc.
