Diabetes Management: It Takes a Team


Oct. 31, 2022

National Diabetes Month 2022

November Is National Diabetes Month

Diabetes affects about 37 million Americans, or 11% of the U.S. population, including adults and youth. It can damage the eyes, kidneys, nerves, and heart, and it’s linked to some types of cancer.

While most people with diabetes get health care from a primary care professional, a team of health care professionals can tailor patients’ diabetes self-care routine for their specific needs. It takes a team to manage diabetes, but remember that you are the most important participant in your diabetes care.
