Diabetes Resources for Older Adults

Diabetes occurs in people of all ages, but it’s more common in older adults. The National Diabetes Education Program offers access to a range of resources that can help older adults learn how to better manage their diabetes or take steps to prevent type 2 diabetes. Caregivers and health care professionals of older adults may also find helpful tools to enhance their understanding of issues that affect this population.
