November is National Diabetes Month. This year we are teaming up with the American Diabetes Association to bring attention to what has become an epidemic in the United States. In Colorado alone, almost 312,000 people have been diagnosed with diabetes, and 1,444,000 people in Colorado have prediabetes.

An additional 117,000 people in our state have diabetes and don’t know it! ARE YOU ONE OF THEM? Take this :60 test to see if you are at risk.
