Diabetes affects more than 24 million Americans, many of whom aren't aware they have the disease until symptoms begin affecting them. Diabetes is a chronic illness that impairs the body's ability to convert food into energy. This disease can affect every major organ in the body and lead to blindness, stroke, heart problems and more.
