November is Diabetes Awareness Month

diabetesThis month, as we celebrate one of our country’s most beloved holidays, we also highlight one of our nation’s most pressing health problems – diabetes.

November is American Diabetes Month, so has partnered with the American Diabetes Association to feature articles, stories and resources all month long on this disease. During November, you will learn how to enjoy the season’s favorite foods while also sticking to a healthy eating plan. You will also be informed just how widespread diabetes is and what you can do to reduce your risk and those around you.

With 24 million American children and adults living with diabetes, and another 57 million at risk for type 2 diabetes, the prevalence of this condition clearly necessitates action from everyone, including families, individuals, public health professionals and policy makers.

We are glad to share with you this month the expertise of the American Diabetes Association, a national organization whose sole mission is to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes.

In addition to the information we will share with you, check with your local chapter of the American Diabetes Association to join their Stop Diabetes movement, get screened and volunteer your time and resources to fight diabetes.
