Diabetes Awareness Month 2013
November is Diabetes Awareness Month, every year, and 11/14 is World Diabetes Awareness Day.
We all should be aware of this real problem, and we all are at potential risk. But by being aware is the first step in preventing the problem for you and the people you love.
In Thursday’s (11/14/2013) Houston Chronicle (see pdf) I read an article that told “doctors told to get serious about obesity” I also found the same article in Time Magaizine so here’s a link to the article from Time, Time also has a video on cholesterol levels, Diabetes Month, and refers to a calculator on the American Heart Association website
