Hawaiians are increasingly feeling the effects of diabetes. Today, approximately 128,653 people in Hawaii, or 11.2% of the adult population, have diagnosed diabetes. The American Diabetes Association can provide resources for you and your family about all types of diabetes as well as information for caregivers and others affected indirectly by the disease.
The American Diabetes Association's Hawaii office is committed to educating our communities about how to Stop Diabetes and supporting those living with the disease.
