We need a strategy now
Although people with type 1 or type 2 diabetes have different journeys, including whether they experience symptoms, there is one issue that unites all people living with the disease. Mississippi lacks a comprehensive strategy to address one of the most significant healthcare crises of our time.
With no dedicated support or action to tackle the diabetes epidemic, it means that, every 24 hours:
- more than 3 Mississippians die of diabetes-related complications
- 70 more Mississippians are diagnosed with this devastating disease
- 2 Mississippians have a lower limb amputation
- our healthcare system spends millions treating diabetes
