November is Diabetes Awareness Month

On November 14, 2016, at the Administrative Hearing, the Mesa County Commissioners proclaimed November 2016 as Diabetes Awareness Month.

Diabetes is a serious, incurable disease that affects millions. An increase in community awareness of risk factors and symptoms related to the disease can improve the likelihood that people with diabetes will get the attention they need before suffering devastating complications.

Type 1 diabetes strikes both children and adults at any age.

Diabetes has many faces, affecting young and old alike.

Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas stops producing insulin and is usually diagnosed in children and young adults.

Children with the help of insulin therapy and other treatments can learn to manage their condition and live long healthy lives.
