November is recognized as American Diabetes Month as part of a national effort to raise awareness of the disease. This is an important month to recognize and support the millions of people who are diagnosed with diabetes. Epinex Diagnostics, Inc. is proud to spread diabetes awareness and support the diabetes community through our social media and blogging efforts. Epinex has also just launched the “Am I Diabetic” app in order to commemorate this month.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) report that approximately 29.1 million people in the United States have diabetes and approximately 86 million have prediabetes. It is important to keep the public informed and educated about this disease as the number of diagnoses continues to rise.
