National Diabetes Month 2013

Diabetes is a Family Affair

National Diabetes Month 2013: Diabetes is a Family Affair Diabetes is a challenging disease that affects the entire family in many ways. If you are living with diabetes or have a loved one with the disease, family support is very important when it comes to managing diabetes and preventing serious health problems. It's also important to know that if you have a family history of diabetes – such as a mother, father, brother, or sister – you are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes.

The NDEP offers resources to help you make healthy lifestyle changes as a family as well as resources that can be used in community settings that are a part of the extended family, such as schools, businesses, and the health care community, among others.

Check out these NDEP resources and help your family and community stay healthy.
