November is American Diabetes Month

A chronic disease that affects the way your body uses food for energy, diabetes is the result of your pancreas making little to no insulin, or the insulin being produced not being used correctly. Lifelong, complicated and expensive, diabetes affects nearly 26 million children and adults in the United States alone. Another 79 million Americans have prediabetes, putting themselves at risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

Each November, American Diabetes Month is one of the outlets the American Diabetes Association uses to raise awareness of this ever-growing disease, and show the nation some of the issues surrounding diabetes, as well as how many people are impacted by it. Founded in 1940, other goals of the American Diabetes Association include funding research, publishing scientific findings and providing information and services to people with diabetes, their families, health professionals and the public.
