Warren County Health District Diabetes Prevention Event


LEBANON, OH -- Diabetes is one of the most prevalent and serious chronic diseases in the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control, more than 37.3 million people (11.3%) in the United States have diabetes, and 1 in 4 of them don’t know they have it. The most recent Warren County Community Health Assessment reports 22,503 adults in Warren County had been diagnosed with some form of diabetes in their lifetime.

One of the tools that is used by healthcare professionals to diagnose someone with prediabetes or diabetes is a hemoglobin A1C test. This is a blood test that measures an individual’s average blood sugar levels over the past three months.
