November is National Diabetes Month, a time when communities across the United States bring attention to this chronic and long-lasting health condition. Diabetes affects the way one’s body turns food into energy and, until this day, although it can be treated and controlled, there is no fundamental cure for it. One of the communities most affected by diabetes is Latinos. U.S. adults overall have a 40% chance of developing Type 2 diabetes over their lifetime. Latino adults have more than a 50% chance of being diabetic and are more likely to develop it at a younger age.
