November 14th Is World Diabetes Day

November 14th is World Diabetes Day, the largest diabetes awareness campaign in the world that reaches over 1 billion people in more than 160 countries. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 100 million adults in the U.S. are living with diabetes or prediabetes. If you are unable to control your diabetes through diet and exercise, there are multiple prescription medications that can help you out. The Partnership for Safe Medicines stresses the importance of purchasing all of your medications and diabetes supplies from U.S. licensed pharmacies to avoid counterfeit insulin pens and test strips that may come from drug importers.
