The Diabetes 2017 hosted and organized by Clyto Access from 18th September 2017 in San Diego State University, San Diego, USA with the theme of "Enhanced studies on Diabetes and Degenerative diseases". Diabetes 2017 will address the key challenges of the field by leading experts engaged in diabetic and other degenerative diseases research and takes a unique opportunity to share ideas about significant advances, treatment and bring about life changing solutions for the people suffering from diabetes and other degenerative diseases.

Diabetes 2017 will help to raise awareness about the importance of diabetes as a global public health problem. Therefore, the Diabetes 2017 intends to instigate awareness in terms of control and prevention of Diabetes and its complications. Owing to the prevalence of the Diabetes complications, the major focus of the Diabetes conference is to bring in innovative approaches and the ideas to combat the serious issues affecting the qualities of life due to Diabetes and degenerative diseases (Alzheimer's disease, Cancer, Friedreich's ataxia, Huntington's disease, Chronic traumatic encephalopathy, Atherosclerosis etc.)

What is Diabetes Conference 2017?

Diabetes is one of the major public health concerns that occur either due to lack of insulin production in the islets cells of the pancreas or due to ineffective use of insulin in the body. According to a WHO, as of 2016, an estimated 422 million people had diabetes worldwide, with type 2 DM making up about 90% of the cases. A degenerative disease is a type of a medical condition that causes a tissue or organ to deteriorate over time. There are quite a number of degenerative diseases and many of them are associated with aging or get worse during the aging process.
