Diabetes represents windfall profits in the USA and other countries from various products designed for the diabetic. It should be noted that the Bush Family with ties to Eli Lilly was instrumental in designing drugs that caused diabetes in the past.

The trickle down economics of diabetes range from the expense of doctors appointments for the prescription to be written (each one to three months) for the cost of the expensive diabetic medication like insulin , metforum and other medication like the damaging Actos. Then there are the cost of needles on a daily basis, diabetic diets. wheel chairs , crutches and heart monitors for those that don't abide and of course the undertaker in the end.

Diabetes represents to the Republicans(and their think tank) a way of profits under medicine just like the Mental Health Industry and mind drugs.
