Thank You for Joining America’s Diabetes Challenge

America’s Diabetes Challenge: Get to Your Goals is a program from Merck and the American Diabetes Association to urge people with type 2 diabetes to work with their doctor to set and reach their A1C goal (A1C is the average blood glucose over the past 2-3 months). The program also encourages people to learn if they are at risk of low blood glucose, known as hypoglycemia and how to help reduce that risk.

How we took the next step

We heard from thousands of people across the country that type 2 diabetes management isn’t always easy. Common challenges were identified like eating healthy, exercising, sticking to a treatment plan and coping with the disease.

Then, we offered tips to help people with type 2 diabetes and their loved ones tackle these challenges head on.

The response was overwhelming, and we’re so impressed by all of you who’ve put our tips into action. Whether you’ve made changes to your diet, started a new exercise routine or reached your A1C goal, you’ve all accomplished so much, and we’re excited to see where you go next.

Thank you for joining America’s Diabetes Challenge, and remember that this community is always here to support you. Keep up the hard work, and continue to share pictures, stories or videos of how you’re taking the next step so we can keep seeing your progress.
