More Americans Successfully Managing Diabetes

Shared by Sally Graham,Goochland Free Clinic and Family Services:  Interesting article in US News and Reports discussing a diabetes control study reported in DIabetes, Feb. 15th. The study examined the percentage of people with HgbA1C’s < 7 but also the percentage with good blood pressure and cholesterol control. In addition, the article addresses health care disparities found in the study. The “ABC’s” approach to evaluating control was a helpful reminder to address “A”- A1C, “B”- blood pressure, and “C”- cholesterol when treating patients with diabetes.
