Missourians are increasingly feeling the effects of diabetes as thousands of people suffer from the disease. Approximately 515,337 people in Missouri, or 10.7% of the adult population, have diabetes. Of these, an estimated 139,000 have diabetes but don't know it.
That is why the American Diabetes Association's Missouri office is so committed to educating the public about how to stop diabetes and support those living with the disease.
