Join 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. The program also aims to help them learn if they are at risk of low blood glucose and how to help reduce that risk. Friends and caregivers are encouraged to challenge their loved ones to get to their A1C goal and to help support the nearly 30 million Americans living with diabetes, most of whom have type 2 diabetes.
People with type 2 diabetes can help reduce their risk of serious complications by setting individual goals to help manage the ABCs of diabetes—that’s A for A1C, also known as blood glucose, B for blood pressure and C for cholesterol.
