    00:03 Diabetes is a chronic illness.

    00:05 So please underline that word chronic.

    00:08 It's something that's going to be ongoing in a battle for the rest of this patient's life.

    00:13 So it includes impaired glucose metabolism, hyperglycemia, and increased risk for vascular complications.

    00:20 Those include eye damage, renal failure, MI or heart attack, and CVA which is a cerebral vascular accident or stroke.

    00:30 Type 1 diabetic patients make up about 5% to 10% and type 2 diabetic patients make up 90% to 95% of the overall population of diabetic clients in the US.

    00:42 Type 1 diabetic clients require insulin as treatment to control their blood sugar.

    00:48 Type 2 diabetic clients initially may not require insulin as a treatment to control their blood sugar.

    00:53 But as the disease progresses, that may progress to the point that there also will require insulin as treatment.
