November is both National Diabetes Month and Diabetic Eye Disease Month, and because of this we've selected Diabetic Living as our Magazine of the Month.
Diabetic Living is part of the Better Homes and Gardens, and each month they provide information and helpful articles for both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetics, including delicious recipes! You can check out issues at Carnegie-Stout or take a tour of their website: www.diabeticlivingonline.com
In the United States today, an estimated 25.8 million adults and children, or 8.3% of the population, have diabetes. The American Diabetes Association (www.diabetes.org) and the CDC (www.cdc.gov/diabetes/pubs/factsheet11.htm) are both sources for up to date statistics, as well as other helpful information.
Carnegie-Stout also has a collection of books and DVDs on topics related to diabetes, and of course we have a number of excellent cookbooks!
Check out a short list of our Diabetic Cookbooks here.
