Cooper Center for Metabolism (CCM) works as a partner with both pre-diabetes patients and those who already have a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes.
In 2005, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) labeled type 2 diabetes and pre-diabetes as epidemic conditions in the United States. Dr. Cooper believes that type 2 diabetes is preventable and that some cases of type 2 diabetes are still reversible, particularly in patients with high body weight.
Scientists predict that by 2020 as many as 60% of the adult US population will be affected by either pre-diabetes or full blown type 2 diabetes. At CCM, we work diligently to prevent and reduce the severity of this disease.
