If you are one of the 30 million Americans who have diabetes, now is the time to make improvements to your overall health. Making a few lifestyle changes can greatly reduce the risk of diabetes-related health problems. Diabetes can lead to blindness, heart disease, stroke, and kidney failure without proper treatment and if a healthy blood sugar level is not maintained.
