Did you know November is American Diabetes Month?


Did you know November is American Diabetes Awareness Month? You may ask what can I do? As a diabetic, your voice is strong to tell everyone about your diabetes. There are many things, you as a diabetic can make people aware of your disease and how it affects you.

Most Type 2 diabetes can be prevented with exercise and diet. Most Type 2 diabetics control their diseases with oral medications, diet and exercise.
