What everyone needs to know about diabetes

To Your Health: Jill Robart

November is Diabetes Awareness Month.  It is important to know about diabetes, its symptoms, and possible complications, as 30.3 million Americans have diabetes, or 9.4% of the population. One in four Americans does not even know they have it.  Diabetes affects more than 55,000 Vermonters. The prevalence of diabetes has been steady in our state for the past several years. However, as overweight Vermont children reach adulthood, diabetes rates are expected to increase significantly.
