National Health Observances for November 2020

American Diabetes Month

More than 29 million people in the United States have diabetes. Of these 29 million people, 95% have Type 2 diabetes, while the remaining 5% have Type 1 diabetes. Both types of diabetes center around the inability to control one’s blood sugar. American Diabetes Month is intended to raise awareness about this serious disease.

While you can’t prevent Type 1 diabetes, you can prevent Type 2 diabetes. Making the following six lifestyle changes can greatly increase your chances of preventing the disease.

  1. Manage your weight.
  2. Increase your activity level.
  3. Talk with your doctor about your risks.
  4. Monitor your carbohydrate intake.
  5. Maintain a healthy diet.
  6. Choose whole grains.
