Diabetes Awareness Month

November is National Diabetes Month. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has reported that more than 34 million people have diabetes and 88 million adults have prediabetes, but many may not know they have it.

Learn about the A1C test, an important tool in screening for prediabetes and diabetes.

#DiabetesMonth #HealthierTomorrows

[ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT:

Understanding the A1C blood test

The A1C test shows how well you have managed your blood glucose over the past two to three months.

People without diabetes have an A1C range of 4% to 6%. The American Diabetes Association suggests an A1C of 7% for nonpregnant adults.

To keep your A1C levels below 7%, you need to follow your diabetes management plan, which means eating a healthy diet, exercising, monitoring your blood glucose and taking medications, if necessary.

A1C targets often change over time, and it all depends on you and your circumstances.

Talk to your doctor about the right A1C target for you.]

Hot chili peppers can act as a decongestant and help relieve a stuffy nose.⁣
Garlic helps strengthen your immune system, while ginger helps tame nausea.⁣
⁣⁣Managing symptoms with meds:⁣
⁣ Body aches, fever, congestion and coughs can often be treated with over-the-counter medication. ⁣⁣
Check with your pharmacist or physician to determine the best medication for you.⁣
Remember, if your symptoms become severe, see your physician or call 911.]⁣
