A new study by Jacques Lowe of the Carle Illinois College of Medicine has shown that Florida and Texas have a high percentage of people with long-term and short-term diabetes complications. Such research could help the government direct medical support to where it is needed most. The findings are also a call for you to test for diabetes if you live in the hot-spot areas.
The researchers created a map of the hot-spot areas in the US, showing various diabetic complications and the demographic information of these areas. These complications include nerve damage, chronic kidney disease, heart disease, and oral, foot, and vision problems.
