The ABC's of Diabetes

November is American Diabetes Month

Let's talk the ABC's of Diabetes. 

According to Diabetes.Org: 


The A1C test tells you your average blood glucose control for the past 2-3 months. This can help you know how well your diabetes treatment plan is working. 

B=Blood Pressure

Blood pressure measures the force of blood flow inside your blood vessels. A high BP makes your heart work harder. 


Cholesterol numbers tell you how much fat is in your blood. The more fat, the more at risk you are for heart disease.

Know your numbers! Talk with your healthcare provider today!
