Join America’s Diabetes Challenge
America’s Diabetes Challenge: Get to Your Goals is a program from Merck, the American Diabetes Association and iHeart Media to urge people with type 2 diabetes to pledge to work with their doctor to set and reach their A1C (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.
Diabetes management isn’t always easy, so we want to learn about your struggles, as well as the successes you’ve achieved. America’s Diabetes Challenge is asking people to share their personal experiences. Perhaps you’re having difficulty visiting your doctor regularly, eating healthy foods or reaching your A1C goal. Maybe you’ve had success tracking your self-monitored blood glucose levels or sticking to your individualized diabetes management plan.
If you are one of the millions of Americans living with type 2 diabetes, or if you would like to support those with the disease, we want you to know YOUR VOICE MATTERS – SHARE YOUR STORY TODAY.
