November is Diabetes Awareness Month and the American Diabetes Association wants people to be aware of what this disease does to people and that it can affect anyone. Vanessa Wiseman, with the American Diabetes Association, said there are many types of diabetes that can be inherited, developed through health habits and developed through pregnancy. She said while two of those ways can't be helped, type two diabetes can be prevented by staying active and eating healthy.

Wiseman said some Diabetes superfoods include berries, whole grains, sweet potatoes, and fish; and many others can be found online at diabetes.org

 

Wiseman also said if symptoms of diabetes arise, go to the doctor and see if it has been developed.

Wiseman appeared on the NEWSTALK WTIM Morning Show.
