To mark National Diabetes Month, the North Dakota Department of Health's (NDDoH) Diabetes Program and its partners are promoting lifestyle changes that, although seemingly small, could significantly improve the quality of life for the nearly one in 11 North Dakotans who are living with diabetes.
"Community support helps people deal with many challenges of life, including diabetes," an NDDoH news release said.
Other ways to manage diabetes include eating meals and snacks that are healthy, getting the proper amount of exercise and keeping doctor's appointments.
“Whether community means loved ones at home, school, work, or place of worship, having a support system is an important part of staying healthy,” Tera Miller, NDDoH Diabetes Program director, said.
Those with a family history of diabetes have an increased risk for developing the disease. More information about diabetes - and ways to manage it - can be found online at www.ndep.nih.gov.
