Did you know that November is American Diabetes Awareness Month?
Diabetes is a disease that affects the whole family, especially when a child is diagnosed. Whether you're a teacher to that child, parent, sibling or other family member, your support and understanding can make all the difference. There is no cure for diabetes, but it can be managed. Balancing nutritious food choices with exercise and medicine (if prescribed) will help control weight and can keep blood glucose levels in the healthy range.
