November is National Diabetes Month Home Office

Each November communities across the country observe National Diabetes Month to bring attention to diabetes and its impact on millions of Americans. One in 10 Americans have diabetes - that’s more then 30 million people. Another 84 million adults in the United States are at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes. This year, the National Diabetes Education Program’s theme is: “Everyday Reality”

This theme highlights the daily decisions those who have diabetes must make daily - from what they’ll eat, what they will wear, what they will do, and how they’ll take care of themselves. Yet the 24/7 burden of diabetes management is often misunderstood. This year's campaign is intended to demonstrate the everyday reality of diabetes from the point of view of people living with diabetes or caring for someone with diabetes.

While the everyday reality of diabetes can seem overwhelming, there are ways we can all help - and to prevent it from becoming the everyday reality for millions more. You are the most important member of your diabetes care team, but you don’t have to manage your diabetes alone. Seek support from health care professionals, your family, your friends, and your community to help manage your diabetes.
