Fountain Health reignited the warning in light of American Heart Month, which focuses on cardiovascular care.

Annabel Fountain, the medical director of Fountain Health, reminded the public that type 2 diabetes could be “managed effectively and even reversed” by adjustments to diet and increasing daily exercise.
