November marks the beginning of National Diabetes Awareness Month, a time to shine a spotlight on a widespread chronic condition affecting millions. With over 34 million Americans living with diabetes, pharmacies play a crucial role in providing education, support, and resources for diabetes care. In this blog, we'll delve into the significance of diabetes care and how Health on South Rx, your local healthcare partner, can assist you in managing this condition.

Understanding the Diabetes Epidemic

Diabetes, which impacts how the body processes glucose from food, comes in two primary forms: Type 1 and Type 2. Type 1 is an autoimmune condition where the body doesn't produce insulin, while Type 2 is characterized by insulin resistance. Both types require ongoing care, lifestyle adjustments, and medication management to maintain healthy blood sugar levels.
