Diabetes Alert Day

Raise your awareness of Type 2 diabetes in time for #Diabetes‏ Alert Day. Diabetes affects more than 10% of the U.S. and one out of four adults with diabetes aren’t aware they have the disease. Another 84 million Americans have prediabetes, but 90% of them don’t know it yet. Many people are unaware of the serious health problems associated with diabetes, so it is important to learn if you are at risk of developing diabetes.

There are two kinds of diabetes: Type 1 and Type 2. With Type 1 diabetes, the pancreas stop producing insulin, which regulates blood sugar. With Type 2 diabetes, the pancreas produces too little insulin or the body’s cells are not responding properly to insulin. Both types of diabetes can lead to dangerous conditions, such as heart disease, vascular disease and stroke, eye damage, kidney damage, and hard-to-treat infections, Have you told your doctor about any risk factors you have such as family history of diabetes? Your age, extra weight and a sedentary lifestyle should all be considered. Tell your doctor immediately if you have diabetes symptoms such as frequent urination, itchy skin, fatigue, hunger, dry mouth, and blurred vision. Your doctor can help determine the right screening and treatment plan..
