American diabetes month, prevention and treatment

Nutrition Notes

November is American Diabetes Month sponsored by  the American Diabetes Association.  Most of us know someone who has diabetes, and if we don’t know someone now, chances are that we will over the course of the next decade as the number of patients developing Type 2 Diabetes continues to rise.  Type 2 Diabetes is treatable and preventable with lifestyle modifications including creating a healthy diet.

  • Every 17 seconds, someone is diagnosed with diabetes.
  • Diabetes kills more people each year than breast cancer and AIDS combined.
  • Recent estimates project that as many as 1 in 3 American adults will have diabetes in 2050 unless we take steps to Stop Diabetes
