Approximately 7.8 million patients over age 20 are diagnosed every year with Type Two Diabetes (DMII) in the United States. Eighty-six million Americans aged 20 and over are at risk for developing DMII due to pre-diabetic conditions (ADA, 2018). These statistics are grim. Diabetes has the potential to affect every system in the body, and if not managed properly, can lead to major complications such as renal failure, blindness, cardiac complications, and skin issues. Patients with diabetes often do not realize the importance of following their plan of care to avoid these serious complications.
