Diabetes Resources

Diabetes is a metabolic disease that affects people when the body does not properly use or produce insulin.

The primary symptoms of Diabetes include:

  • frequent urination
  • excessive thirst
  • extreme hunger
  • unusual weight loss
  • increased fatigue
  • blurry vision.

It is estimated that 13 million Americans have been diagnosed with Diabetes and an additional 5 million Americans are unaware they have the disease.

The cause of the disease is not fully understood but genetics and environmental factors like obesity and a sedentary lifestyle have an effect. A Glucose Test is performed by a healthcare provider to diagnose Diabetes.

People with diabetes are at high risk for a heart attack or a stroke. Restricting the diet and maintaining a proper exercise regimen can help control Diabetes and reduce the health risks.
