      Health Minute: Enhancing diabetes awareness

      November is national diabetes month, and in it's honor there are some ways to make your life with diabetes a bit easier.

      If you are living with diabetes consider consulting a diabetes educator. Education is an absolutely crucial part of controlling the disease, and improves your quality of life.

      A recent study shows diabetes educators lower health care costs, by helping reduce serious complications from the disease. However, according to the American Association of Diabetes Educators, at most, only about half of diabetics receive self-management education.

      E xperts say it's never too late to start.
