In a report issued on Monday by the International Diabetes Federation, the group estimated that 552 million people may have diabetes by 2030. Today, about one adult in 13 has some form of diabetes.

The Holiday season is upon us, Thanksgiving is less than 2 weeks away and many of us will be indulging in all the yummy goodies. Whether you are already on a diet or just want to maintain your weight, there are plenty of easy activities to keep the number on your scale from rising. Walking is one of the easiest, low impact activities we can do and promotional pedometers can be a great tool to monitor your success. Promotional pedometers can be simple or multi-functional depending on your needs. They are great for any industry, especially healthcare, to promote a healthy and active lifestyle.
