November is American Diabetes Month®—a time to shine a spotlight on a serious disease that leads to potentially life-threatening complications such as heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, blindness, and amputation. *

This year, we need to take a bolder, more audacious approach to American Diabetes Month. Consider that:

  • 24 million children and adults in the United States live with diabetes
  • 57 million Americans are at risk for type 2 diabetes
  • 1 out of every 3 children born today will face a future with diabetes if current trends continue

You can join this movement against diabetes by spreading the word, urging friends and family members to get tested, encouraging healthy eating and healthy lifestyle changes including effective exercising such as walking, biking, and swimming.
