2012 American Diabetes Month

User Rating:  / 1

Today, more than 25 million Americans are living with diabetes and 79 million more are at risk of developing type 2 diabetes. The Rutherford Polk McDowell District Health Department is proud to participate in American Diabetes Month to promote diabetes prevention and control.

People who are overweight, over 45 years old, or who have high blood pressure are more likely to develop type 2 diabetes. The good news is that you can take steps to lower your chances of developing type 2 diabetes:

  • Watch your weight.
  • Eat healthy.
  • Be active.
  • Control your blood pressure and cholesterol.
