Diabetes

Diabetes and Prediabetes
Diabetes is a disease in which blood glucose levels are above normal. When you have diabetes, your body either doesn’t make enough insulin or cannot use its own insulin as well as it should. Approximately 7.2% of Calvert County residents have been diagnosed with diabetes.

Prediabetes is a condition in which blood sugar is high, but not high enough to be type 2 diabetes.

Having diabetes means COVID-19 can be more dangerous for you.

Living Well with DiabetesLiving Well with Diabetes is a 6-week self-management workshop for those with type II diabetes and pre-diabetes. Learn the keys to take charge of your diabetes. Classes are free, but registration is required.
