Diabetes Initiative

Diabetes is a major public health problem of epidemic proportions. More than 12% of the U.S. adult population has diabetes, and more than one-quarter of the population over 65 has the disease. One out of four people with diabetes is unaware they have it,  which means they are not being treated with a healthy diet or medications. 

Uncontrolled, diabetes can lead to complications from head to toe, including stroke, loss of vision, heart disease, kidney failure, and various problems due to nerve damage and circulatory problems, such as erectile dysfunction or lower-extremity amputation.

The Course

The Food for Life: Diabetes Initiative is the plant-based nutrition and cooking program for type 2 diabetes prevention and treatment developed by the  Physicians  Committee for  Responsible  Medicine.  The intended audience for this program is people with diabetes,  prediabetes, a family history or risk factors for developing diabetes, and their adult family members. It is also designed to introduce health care professionals to the basics of plant-based nutrition for preventing and treating diabetes.
