November Is National Diabetes Awareness Month

According to American Diabetes Association, “nearly 30 million children and adults in the United States have diabetes. Another 86 million Americans have prediabetes and are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes.” But the good news is that people who are at high risk for type 2 diabetes can lower their risk by more than half if they make healthy changes.
