Overview

According to the CDC, more than 34 million Americans have diabetes and another 88 million have pre-diabetes. The progressive nature of diabetes and its relationship to other serious conditions like cardiovascular disease and kidney disease make it a priority for PAs and other providers. This toolkit offers educational resources and tools to help PAs prevent diabetes in patients who are at risk and manage the condition in those who are already affected.
