How can we change the rising costs of diabetes care?

Tonight Manny shared with me a note about a report that estimated the possible costs of diabetes care in 2025. And the numbers are scary. Have a look at my animation of how the incidence of diabetes changes from 2010 to 2015 to 2025, these are based on image from the report website. Watch it through a few times and notice how some how some of the states in 2025 are a dark red (lots of diabetes estimated) that doesn't even appear in last year's map. Those represent states where close to 20% of the people may end up with diabetes (mostly type 2).

I’ve a longer blog post on where I offer some suggestions about ways to positively impact the possible results of Diabetes in 2025, please go check it out and offer suggestions you think might make a difference.
