  • These are a fascinating data! In Illinois, the rate of diabetes has been increased approximately 60% compared to 1994! The total cost of diabetes in Illinois alone exceeds $7.3 billion dollar per year! On the same note only in 2009 1,641 lower limb amputations were performed means approximately every 4 and half hour one amputation with an average cost of $51,585 per amputation! I assumed these number should be much worst for many other states!
