Indeed, diabetes is a nationwide epidemic in the United States affecting nearly 26 million Americans, with 90-95% of these cases being T2DM. The monetary costs for diabetes alone accounts for an estimated 245 billion dollars in the United States annually. CVD is the primary cause of death in people with T2DM and ranks number one in fatalities worldwide. Similar to increased incidences of individuals with T2DM, diagnosis of people with MS is steadily rising.
