November is American Diabetes Month

More than 29 million Americans, or about 9 percent of the U.S. population, have diabetes.  It is estimated that one in every 4 people with diabetes does not even know they have the disease.  Diabetes is a very serious, often frustrating and sometimes debilitating disease.  It has been directly linked to heart disease, stroke, and kidney disease- and often causes isolation due to complications such as loss of limbs or depression.  People with diabetes are nearly 2 times more likely to die from heart disease or stroke than a person without diabetes.
