The Andrew County Health Department would like to remind you Diabetes can strike anyone, from any walk of life.

And it does - in numbers that are dramatically increasing.

In the last decade, the cases of people living with diabetes jumped almost 50 percent - to more than 29 million Americans. If you are diabetic make sure you are following the proper diet, getting regular checkups, and testing your blood sugar as often as your healthcare provider says.
