Approximately 1 out of every 10 people in the US have diabetes (that’s about 34 million people) and about 1 out of every 3 people have prediabetes (about 88 million). Most people with prediabetes are not even aware they have it. Diabetes has become more of an issue in San Antonio & Bexar County than in the US and other parts of Texas. This is why the City of San Antonio Metro Health started the Diabetes Prevention & Control program in 2013. We offer services free to the community to help prevent and control diabetes, helping you to live a longer healthier life. Let us know how we can help you make changes, lower your risk, and take control.
