Diabetes can strike anyone, from any walk of life. And it does--in numbers that are dramatically increasing. In the last decade, the cases of people with diabetes jumped almost 50 percent--to more than 29 million Americans.
Worldwide, it afflicts more than 380 million people. And the World Health Organization estimates that by 2030, that number will more than double.
