Nov 07, 2017

According to the American Diabetes Association, half of all Americans age 65 and older have pre-diabetes and are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes. Nearly 26% of Americans 65 plus have already been diagnosed with diabetes. One out of every three Medicare dollars is spent on diabetes. Those figures are expected to continue to rise but they do not have to…we know how to prevent or delay type 2 diabetes.

On Tuesday, November 14th we will join in the celebration of World Diabetes Day. The awareness campaign reaches a global audience of over one billion people in 160 countries.

The American Diabetes Association offers a free guide, Living Healthy with Diabetes, for older adults.
