November is Diabetes Awareness Month, making this a great opportunity to discuss this disease and its risk factors.
Some risk factors include:
- Family history
- Blood pressure
- Activity levels
These are just a few of the factors that can affect your chances of developing diabetes.
Preventing the onset of Type 2 diabetes can sometimes be helped or delayed losing excess body fat and engaging in a healthy exercise program approved by your doctor.
Your healthcare professional, including your pharmacist, can tell you how to get practical advice about medications, insulin, and glucose meters to help you manage your diabetes.
