The old saying, " What goes up, must come down" sadly doesn't apply to diabetes care and management cost, not by a long shot (as any diabetic, or caregiver knows).

Here are some of the latest figures and information on the subject:

The cost of diabetes rose 41% over five years, according to new research, which included work-related costs.

The growing toll of diabetes cost the nation a record high $245 billion in 2012, a 41% increase from $174 billion in 2007, according to new research released today.

But you don't have to tell us that (diabetics and caregivers alike) we know!
