This section of our site provides general information about diabetes. Many people are unaware of the risk factors for type 2 diabetes or the symptoms for both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. This is one of the reasons for late diagnosis of both types. A significant part of our mission at the UF Diabetes Institute is to assure access to comprehensive clinical services in a caring environment that is responsive to the needs of our patients, their families, and their caregivers.
