About 26 million people are living with diabetes and 79 million more are at risk for diabetes. These staggering numbers mean that 105 million Americans have diabetes or prediabetes. If you or a loved one is living with diabetes, take time to go over a daily care plan as well as a care plan during an illness or emergency. Small changes can make a big difference in preventing health challenges today and in the future.
