November 2015 Toolkit — American Diabetes Month /‪#‎RondishCare‬

Diabetes is one of the leading causes of disability and death in the United States. It can cause blindness, nerve damage, kidney disease, and other health problems if it’s not controlled.

One in 11 Americans have diabetes – that’s more than 29 million people. And another 86 million adults in the United States are at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

People who are at high risk for type 2 diabetes can lower their risk by more than half if they make healthy changes, including eating healthy, increasing physical activity, and losing weight.

Here are just a few ideas:

  1. Encourage people to make small changes, like taking the stairs instead of the elevator.
  2. Talk to people in your community about getting regular checkups. They can get their     blood pressure and cholesterol checked, and ask the doctor about their diabetes risk.
  3. Ask doctors and nurses to be leaders in their communities by speaking about the importance of healthy eating and physical activity.
