Founded in 1972, Kilo Diabetes & Vascular Research Foundation works to preserve life, promote health and safeguard the lives of people with diabetes and vascular disease through research, education, proper care and treatment. The overall research objective is to understand how diabetes affects the body and to develop medications and interventions to prevent vascular damage and diabetes-induced complications of blindness, heart attacks, strokes, nerve damage and kidney failure. This research has important implications for non-diabetics as well since we have discovered great similarities between the vascular damage caused by diabetes and damage to arteries and blood vessels that leads to heart attacks and strokes in non-diabetics.
