Every year in November, communities across the country team up to bring awareness to the diabetes epidemic. Diabetes is a chronic disease that occurs when the pancreas does not produce enough insulin or when the body cannot effectively use the insulin it produces. There are three main types of diabetes: type 1, type 2, and gestational diabetes. There are also millions of Americans who are prediabetic, with about 8 in 10 of them not even knowing.
