There are three types of diabetes: type 1, type 2, and gestational diabetes. Most diabetics have type 2 diabetes. And it may surprise you to know that 1 out of 4 of the 29 million people in the United States with diabetes don’t know they have it.
American Diabetes Month is all about focusing awareness on diabetes and the actions you can take today to reduce your risk, like staying active during the week and maintaining a healthy weight through diet and exercise.
It’s possible to prevent the onset of diabetes. For more information, call our free 24/7 nurse advice hotline to speak with a Registered Nurse any day, anytime. Or speak to a doctor in person by scheduling an appointment today.
