NOVEMBER IS AMERICAN DIABETES MONTH

NOVEMBER 1, 2012
The healthcare providers at Bozeman Deaconess Diabetes Center want to remind individuals, communities and families that diabetes is a serious matter. Diabetes, un-managed, can damage many parts of the body, leading to heart attacks, strokes, amputation, blindness, and kidney failure and nerve damage.

“Diabetes prevalence continues to rise at an alarming rate with nearly 10% of the US population being affected by the disease, says Sebastian White, NP, Bozeman Deaconess Internal Medicine Associates. “If these trends continue, we estimate that 1 in 3 Americans will have diabetes by 2050.”

But there is good news: diabetes complications can be prevented by properly managing blood glucose, blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Some simple adjustments to your lifestyle can reduce the risks of diabetes complications.

“The time to act is now!” White added. “Ask your health care provider about a screening test for diabetes and remember to eat breakfast, avoid sugar-sweetened beverages, and get some type of physical activity every day”
