National Diabetes Month – Diabetes Awareness

By Jeffrey Sterling, MD December 8, 2019

Introduction

November is National Diabetes Month. The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) has chosen to focus on the link between diabetes and cardiovascular disease. You must come to understand that diabetes isn’t just contained to itself. This disease causes devastation across the entire body. For example, adults with diabetes are nearly twice as likely to die from heart disease or stroke as people without diabetes.

Get Empowered During National Diabetes Month

There are steps you can take to manage your diabetes. These same steps can also help lower your chances of having heart disease or a stroke. Try these.

  • Stop smoking or using other tobacco products.
  • Know and manage your A1C, blood pressure, and cholesterol levels.
  • Develop or maintain healthy lifestyle habits. Be more physically active and learn ways to manage stress.
  • Take medicines as prescribed by your doctor, not based on how you “feel.”
