November is just around the corner, and every November is American Diabetes Month. Last year, we worked together to help increase diabetes awareness with the American Diabetes Association but this year, they’re looking to take the next step in a national movement and Stop Diabetes altogether by helping to get the word out and fight the disease. Here are some interesting statistics that really get you thinking:
* 24 million children and adults in the United States live with diabetes
* 57 million Americans are at risk for type 2 diabetes
* 1 out of every 3 children born today will face a future with diabetes if current trends continue
The numbers above were pulled from the diabetes.org website. If those trends aren’t alarming, then I don’t know what is. These are some inspiring numbers so tell your friends, your families, and join in to help Stop Diabetes.
