Merck is proud to continue its collaboration with the American Diabetes Association to educate adults with diabetes about their risk for potentially developing serious health problems. Diabetes increases the risk for a number of illnesses that can be serious, including pneumococcal pneumonia/pneumococcal disease, influenza (flu), and hepatitis B. Our recent survey found that most adults with diabetes were unaware of their increased risk for certain serious illnesses, including pneumococcal pneumonia/pneumococcal disease, flu, and hepatitis B. Knowing your personal risk and having good communication with your healthcare professionals can help you feel in control and respond to the challenges that come with diabetes.
For more information about pneumococcal pneumonia, flu, or hepatitis B, talk to your healthcare professionals.
