November is American Diabetes Month®

South Tabor Family Physicians wants to help bring attention to this disease and partner with our patients to learn how they can improve their health!

“Diabetes is a disease that occurs when your blood glucose, also called blood sugar, is too high.

It affects about 37 million American adults and children — that’s 11% of the U.S. population. Diabetes can damage the eyes, kidneys, nerves, and heart, and is linked to some types of cancer.

But there’s also good news. Research shows that managing your diabetes as early as possible after being diagnosed can help prevent many of these health problems. So how can you better manage your diabetes and improve your health? Well, it takes a team. Ask your primary care doctor if you should talk with other health care professionals about your concerns.” – NIH/NIDDK Learn more here!
