Published: Tuesday, April 23, 2013 5:30 a.m. CDT

HUNTLEY — Nearly 26 million children and adults in the United States have diabetes. For too many Americans, diabetes is thought of as a minor hindrance rather than the life-changing disease it is.

Patients and their loved ones will learn about and discuss “Carbs: The Good, the Bad and Knowing the Difference” at the diabetes support group from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. April 25 at Centegra Health Campus, Huntley conference room.

The diabetes support group meets on a quarterly basis to provide support for anyone with diabetes or those who support family members who have been diagnosed.
