CDC provides resources and technical assistance to state and territorial diabetes-control programs to help them (1) educate persons regarding diabetes, (2) improve and monitor the quality of diabetes care, and (3) promote early detection of diabetic complications. The National Diabetes Education Program (NDEP), sponsored by CDC and NIH, aims to educate the public about controlling diabetes and preventing its complications. The NDEP campaign, “Know your ABCs,”‡ addresses risk factors for ESRD-DM, such as hyperglycemia, hypertension, and hyperlipidemia. In addition, the National Kidney Disease Education Program,§ sponsored by NIH, seeks to raise public awareness about the seriousness of kidney disease, the importance of testing for kidney disease among those at risk, and the availability of treatment to prevent or slow kidney failure. Similarly, the National Kidney Foundation offers the Kidney Early Evaluation Program,∥ a free health-screening program for persons at increased risk for kidney disease.
