Diabetes might be prevented with early detection

Researchers in North Carolina and elsewhere hope that earlier detection of type 2 diabetes could save lives and money. In North Carolina alone, the disease leads to 8,400 deaths a year and $5.3 billion in medical expenses. The condition, marked by elevated levels of sugar in the blood, afflicts tens of millions of adults in the U.S., including an estimated 376,000 in North Carolina. It is among the leading lethal consequences of obesity.
