"At just a little over two years old, the JDCA remains deeply committed to bringing about a practical cure for type 1 diabetes by 2025," Gorin says.
Gorin says JDCA expects to continue its diligence in the new year, expanding its coverage of institutions that take part in diabetes research and revving up its media presence.
Earlier this year JDCA found that more than 5 million people across the United States are directly impacted by type 1 diabetes, with at least a million living with the disease and another 4 million residing in households that are managing type 1.
The growing number of people with type 1 diabetes and the medical costs associated with their disease are having an adverse impact on millions of Americans and on the nation's health care system, JDCA says.
JDCA says the remaining $7.5 billion is a result of lost income from missed work days and lower productivity.
"Americans with diabetes incur medical expenses significantly higher than those without diabetes," JDCA notes.

"An idealized cure is predicated upon entirely eliminating the disease," JDCA says in its "State of the Cure 2013" report released last month.
While JDCA says it would be overjoyed if researchers found a way to completely wipe out type 1 diabetes, the fact is that scientists have been unsuccessful in their pursuit of such a cure for more than a century.
"Even now, idealized cure research is at such an early stage of conceptual development that it is unlikely to deliver a cure in time to benefit anyone who is currently living with type 1 ," the JDCA report says, noting that many of the individual donors and organizations that are funding diabetes research expect a cure to be available much sooner.
Over the past two years, JDCA has done eight surveys of the type 1 diabetes donor community to gauge donors' expectations, priorities and attitudes about cure progress.
"Many people with type 1 diabetes have been hearing that a cure is imminent since they were diagnosed, even if that diagnosis was decades ago," the JDCA report says.
