Small Steps, Big Rewards: Prevent Type 2 Diabetes

Diabetes affects more than 29 million Americans or about 9 percent of the United States population. It's also estimated that one in every four persons with diabetes is unaware that they have the disease.

Did you know that if you have a family history of diabetes, you have a greater chance of getting type 2 diabetes? That means if you have a mother, father, brother, or sister with type 2 diabetes, you have a greater chance of getting the disease.
