Diabetes and the obesity that is often an accompanying risk factor has grown to epidemic proportions. It is now the seventh leading cause of death in the U.S.

A back-of-tie "Awareness Note" and a source citation are incorporated in the pattern design, which reads:

"DIABETES is a metabolic disease characterized by high levels of blood SUGAR caused by either lack of the hormone INSULIN or inability of cells to utilize insulin produced.  Obesity is often a major cause of the imbalance. Management typically includes weight loss, healthy diet, physical exercise and monitoring."
