User Rating:  / 0
PoorBest 

Diabetes is one of the leading causes of disability and death in the United States. One in 12 Americans has diabetes – that's more than 25 million people. And another 79 million adults in the United States are at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes.  To raise awareness about diabetes and healthy living, the Rutherford Polk McDowell District Health Department is proudly participating in American Diabetes Month. 

If you are overweight, have high blood pressure, or are age 45 or older, you are 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 active.
