There are some surprising facts that have
come out in Diabetes in America that I think the average reader, no matter what level they’re
at, I think they may find surprising. So, hearing loss is much higher in people
with diabetes compared to those without. Periodontal disease, there’s a chapter on
oral health, there is much more gum disease in people with diabetes compared to those
without, which is responsible for tooth loss. There is a higher rate of urinary incontinence,
erectile dysfunction, of dementia, of depression. These facts may not be known to readers.
