AMERICAN DIABETES MONTH
Diabetes is one of the leading causes of disability and death in the United States. One in 10 Americans have diabetes — that’s more than 30 million people. And another 84 million adults in the United States are at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
To raise awareness about diabetes and healthy living, Express Family Care is proudly participating in American Diabetes Month. According to the American Diabetes Association over 450,000 Oklahomans live with diabetes, and another million have prediabetes.
Depending on your age, weight, and other factors, you may be at higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes. The good news is that making healthy changes can greatly lower your risk. To help prevent type 2 diabetes:
- Watch your weight
- Eat healthy
- Get more physical activity
