November is National Diabetes Month. This month shines a spotlight on the 37 million people living with diabetes and the 96 million with prediabetes. Certain communities are hit harder with diabetes than others due to a combination of genetics and social determinants of health.
Which of the following statements are most accurate?
November kicks off National Diabetes Month, a time to recognize that over 11% of Americans are living with diabetes and over 35% have prediabetes. Since diabetes results from a combination of genetics plus environment, there is a recognition that social determinants of health play a pivotal role in the development of diabetes and its complications. Through advocacy and education, we can inform individuals on best care for diabetes and support them in taking action to improve the health of their communities to prevent future diabetes. We have put together a list of FREE diabetes resources in English and Spanish to share with people living with prediabetes and diabetes. Thank you for your advocacy and belief that we can make a difference. Coach Beverly
