November is National Diabetes Month. Did you know that close to 30 million Americans have diabetes? In fact, 1 in 4 of those Americans with diabetes do not even know they have diabetes.

Symptoms of diabetes are vague which is why it often goes undetected. Risk factors for diabetes include family history of diabetes, inactive lifestyle, overweight, and smoking.

In honor of National Diabetes Month, Seaside Family Medicine will be offering FREE blood sugar screenings. No appointments are necessary.
