National Diabetes Awareness Month -- November 1995

November is National Diabetes Awareness Month. In the United States, approximately half of the 16 million persons with diabetes are believed to be aware that they have this condition. This year, efforts will emphasize increasing awareness among health professionals and the public about scientific findings that confirm the benefit of glycemic control and comprehensive strategies in preventing several complications of diabetes. Special materials are available from a consortium of federal agencies and private organizations (1). These materials include information about diabetes and its preventable complications (i.e., amputations, blindness, cardiovascular disease, and renal disease).

Additional information about diabetes is available from diabetes-control programs in state and territorial health departments, and a Diabetes Home Page is now available through the CDC home page on the Internet World Wide Web (http://www.cdc.gov/nccdphp/ddt/ddthome.htm).
