November is American Diabetes Month, a time to focus on diabetes prevention and control. Why? An estimated 24 million children and adults are living in the United States with diabetes, and an additional 57 million Americans are estimated to be at risk. That translates to one out of every three children born today facing a future with diabetes.
The first step in diabetes prevention and control is education. Check out these articles to learn more about what diabetes is, warning signs of diabetes, and healthy lifestyle articles for prevention and management of diabetes:
