On March 28, the American Diabetes Association holds Diabetes Alert Day. This is a chance to bring awareness to a common, serious health issue facing many Americans. Diabetes is not specifically a women’s health issue. In fact, men are at a slightly higher risk of developing diabetes than women. However, anyone who is pregnant or trying to become pregnant needs to understand the types of diabetes so they can look out for themselves and their children.
If you need help managing your diabetes during pregnancy, schedule an appointment at the Institute for Women’s Health today.
