In the United States, 26 million of all ages are living with diabetes. Another 79 million adults have prediabetes and are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes.
If left undiagnosed or untreated, diabetes can lead to serious health problems such as heart disease, blindness, kidney disease, stroke, amputation and even death. With early diagnosis and treatment, people with diabetes may prevent the development of these health problems.

Happy National Appetizer Day!
Pizza is trendy! But skip the takeout and make your own signature (and better for-you!) pie! Simply think outside the pizza box when it comes to toppings. Load up with colorful veggies, trade traditional pepperoni for lean protein and top with a light sprinkle of flavorful cheese for a punch of fresh flavor.
Next time soup is on your menu, instead of reaching for a canned variety, try making soup at home. That way you control the sodium (for example, using lower sodium broth can save 300+ mg of sodium per cup!) and add more healthful ingredients such as vegetables, beans and whole grains (brown rice, barley, quinoa, whole wheat pasta).
