    November is National Diabetes Awareness Month: Are you at risk?

    This November, join the American Diabetes Association in a national movement to Stop DiabetesSM


    November is American Diabetes Month®—a time to shine a spotlight on a serious disease that leads to potentially life-threatening complications such as heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, blindness, and amputation.
    This year, we need to take a bolder, more audacious approach to American Diabetes Month. Consider that:

    24 million children and adults in the United States live with diabetes
    57 million Americans are at risk for type 2 diabetes
    1 out of every 3 children born today will face a future with diabetes if current trends continue
    We ask you to join the American Diabetes Association in launching a national movement to Stop Diabetes – help us confront it, fight it, and most importantly, stop it.

    Here's how you can become involved:

    Share. Inspire others to join the movement by sharing your personal story. Visit stopdiabetes.com and join us on Facebook and Twitter to learn about all the exciting ways to be a part of the Stop Diabetes movement. Invite your family, friends, and co-workers to join this effort as well.
    Act. Whether you want to walk*, bike* or simply tell a friend, there will be many ways to help us build momentum for the Stop Diabetes movement.
    Learn. The American Diabetes Association has many resources throughout the country to help Stop Diabetes. If you, or a loved one, already have diabetes* or are at risk* for developing it, we can provide medical, lifestyle and motivational information to prevent this disease from taking control of your life and the lives of those around you.
    Give. Sign up with your local American Diabetes Association office to help raise money for diabetes research, federal and state advocacy and public education.
