Diabetes is a prominent portfolio of work at NACDD with multiple projects to support State Health Departments in their diabetes prevention and management work.

Many hands holding puzzle pieces coming togetherDiabetes is a disease in which the body either doesn’t produce enough insulin or can’t use its insulin as well as it should, resulting in above-normal blood sugar levels. Type 2 diabetes, the most common form, can be prevented or delayed by maintaining a healthy weight and getting regular physical activity.

People with diabetes can avoid or delay complications including heart disease, stroke, blindness, kidney failure, lower-limb amputations, and premature death by ongoing management of the disease.

The Diabetes Portfolio of work at NACDD encompasses multiple projects involving many subject matter experts that support State Health Departments and multi-sector partners in their CDC-funded diabetes prevention and management work.
