blood glucose

Unpleasant as it might be, regular blood glucose testing is a reality for many with diabetes.

If it has not already, diabetes is likely to affect someone you love. Prior to the pandemic, diabetes was the seventh-leading cause of death in both our state and the country. According to the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance Survey, more than 1 out of every 10 adults in Arizona has diabetes. When combined with prediabetes, 1 out of every 4 Arizonans is affected.

This chronic disease touches so many lives, but it does not have to. Diabetes can be combatted in our state through education and engagement. A newly unveiled plan can help you and your loved ones manage — or altogether prevent — the progression of diabetes.
