Raise your awareness during National Diabetes Month

Raise your awareness during National Diabetes Month

November 17, 2014 at 2:21 PM

Nearly 30 million children and adults in the United States have diabetes, which is a leading contributor to kidney failure.  However, not everybody knows the connection between these two diseases or that, once they have ESRD, it's never too late to take care of your blood sugar levels.

November-2014-Diabetes.jpgThe American Diabetes Association raises awareness about living with diabetes every November by commemorating American Diabetes Month and RVM does the same via our Education department's patient resources, such as handouts and tip cards.  The department encourages our patients to review the materials, which are also available in Spanish, to help them understand that exercise and weight loss should still be a part of their lifestyle. 

Check out the America Diabetes Association's healthy cooking initiative and the National Diabetes Education Program's "ABCs of Diabetes" educational plan.
