Thank you for joining McLaren Macomb’s department of nutrition and diabetes education in bringing awareness to the disease during November and American Diabetes Month. Continue to help them bring awareness to and prevent diabetes in adults all year long.

Almost 30 million people in the United States are diabetic, representing about 9.3 percent of the population. With 8.1 million undiagnosed and 79 million diagnosed as pre-diabetic, the number of diabetic Americans is certainly poised to grow.

Every little bit can aid in avoiding becoming diabetic, the most effective being maintaining a healthy diet and body weight, achieved by staying active.
