The occurrence of diabetes and other chronic conditions in employees can be a result of many factors including age, ethnicity, family history and obesity. Medical costs associated with diabetes vary, depending on the level of overall glucose (blood sugar) control and/or the coexistence of other medical conditions, including heart disease, high blood pressure, eye disease or kidney disease.
