Diabetes is an epidemic – we will need lots of medical technology to diagnose and treat millions of patients

Posted By on October 17, 2016

There are an estimated 30 million people in the U.S that are afflicted – nearly 1 in every 10 people have the disease.  Think of that when you are in an airport or shopping mall.  That number is expected to continue to grow by ~500k per year.  Of those afflicted today, 8.5 million people are estimated to be afflicted but undiagnosed. There will be billions of dollars spent on better ways to diagnose and treat the disease.  We are continuously looking for novel technologies to help drive down the cost of detection and treatment.   Jeb B Terry, Sr. Oct. 17, 2016
