Did you know that November is National Diabetes Month?

By November 15, 2017Blog

For four weeks, the American Diabetes Association dedicates itself to educating the public about the disease that affects one in eleven Americans – 29 million people – and how we can protect ourselves and those we love.

Diabetes, when left unmanaged, is responsible for blindness, nerve damage, and kidney disease, but healthy eating habits and regular exercise can greatly reduce the likelihood of developing Type II diabetes.

  • Help spread the word about prevention through healthy habits
  • Encourage your friends and family to routinely see their doctor for check ups
  • Speak up about the impact of this disease on our community, and lead the charge for a healthier lifestyle in your circles
