Kit Chow HWS 333 Fall 2009 Diabetes The presentation on diabetes by Jordan has helped me greatly understand the treatments and cures for both type one and two diabetes . There are other materials presented such as myths, quick facts and videos that better educate the class . I learned how diabetes impacts our nation after the presentation . It is a problem that requires more attention nowadays . Although it would be more helpful to have some solid background data and statistics on the subject before going into the symptoms and cures, which I thought was the outline . Jordan started talking about the two most common types of diabetes instead . Diabetes has appeared more in the news in the past 5 years and is getting more publicity . It is estimated that 23 . 6 million people in America have diabetes, including both type I and II . It is the fifth deadliest disease in America . Just in 2005 alone, there were over two hundred thousand deaths as a result of diabetes . This high number is caused by the death of untreated patients . Nearly one fourth of the population who has diabetes are undiagnosed and their symptoms are left untreated . This is a potential dangerous problem we face because diabetics are not aware of the sickness .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
