New Happenings - November 2017!

October is Diabetes Awareness Month!

One in 11 people in the United States has some form of Diabetes.

 

Type ll diabetes is becoming a National epidemic but we CAN do something about it.

 

Diabetes means you have glucose (sugar) levels in your blood that are higher than usual. Your body has trouble turning glucose into energy. Instead of being used by your body, the glucose builds up in your bloodstream and all the cells in your body are starved of energy and nutrition. If left undiagnosed, it will lead to such medical problems as:

 

  • Blindness
  • Nerve damage
  • Kidney disease
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Death

 

The good news is that you can do a lot to prevent or delay getting type 2 diabetes, including:

 

  • Watching your weight
  • Eating healthy
  • Staying active

 

Symptoms of type 2 diabetes often develop over several years. Many people with type 2 diabetes have symptoms for a long time without noticing them. Some people may never notice any symptoms.

 

Symptoms of diabetes include:

 

  • Being very thirsty or hungry
  • Feeling tired for no reason
  • Urinating (going to the bathroom) more than usual
  • Losing weight for no reason
  • Having cuts or bruises that are slow to heal
  • Having trouble seeing (blurry vision)
  • Losing feeling or having tingling in your hands or feet

 

Use this tool to find out if you are at risk for type 2 diabetes. Print out the results and take them to your next checkup.

 

 

If you have concerns about symptoms you are having OR you have been told you have Pre Diabetes, you can talk to your doctor or call Jane Exell…your Faith Community Nurse!
