Transforming the treatment of diabetes
Technology may help to provide more supportive, efficient, and effective care for diabetes, a leading contributor to heart disease. About one of every 11 adults in this country has diabetes ó a chronic, costly condition thatís closely connected to heart disease. Lifestyle changes that encourage eating healthy foods, exercising, and losing weight are the cornerstone of managing both problems. But making those changes can often feel overwhelming and frustrating, especially for people with diabetes.
