Diabetes Awareness: National Diabetes Month

Nov 20, 2017 - Blog by

November is National Diabetes Month. During this time, we want to bring awareness to the condition that affects 9.4% of the U.S. population.

This can include heart disease, kidney failure, blindness, and in some cases; death. There are two types of diabetes. Type 1 and Type 2. Type 1 causes the body to not produce insulin and only accounts for about 5% of those diagnosed. Type 2 is more common and causes the […]
