Diagnosed diabetes is prevalent across all 50 states and Washington, DC. People with diabetes are at high risk of heart disease, stroke, and other serious complications, such as kidney failure, blindness, and amputation of a toe, foot, or leg. CDC’s Division of Diabetes Translation (DDT) focuses on preventing type 2 diabetes, reducing diabetes complications and disability, and reducing diabetes-related disparities, which are differences in health across geographic, racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic groups.
