The mission of the American Diabetes Association (the Association) is to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes. To accomplish this mission, the Association funds research to prevent, cure and manage diabetes and its complications; delivers services to communities across the United States; provides objective and credible information through multiple media and channels; and is actively involved in advocacy and awareness efforts to educate people about the disease and to give voice to those denied their rights because of diabetes. Diabetes is a disease in which the body does not produce or properly use insulin. Insulin is a hormone that is needed to convert sugar, starches and other food into energy needed for daily life. The cause of diabetes continues to elude the medical community, although research has shown that both genetics and environmental factors such as obesity and lack of exercise appear to play roles. The American Diabetes Association is leading the fight against the deadly consequences of diabetes and fighting for those affected by diabetes.
