Diabetes Awareness


During Diabetes Prevention week why not take some time to learn about the risks of diabetes, April is Diabetic awareness month and the week of April 16 to 22 is a week to bring awareness to Type 2 diabetes.

Type 2 diabetes is often linked to lifestyle. If diabetes is left untreated it can lead to stroke, blindness, heart disease, kidney failure and lower limb amputation. Even if one is not at high risk for developing Type 2 diabetes, one can reduce their risk by losing weight, eating healthy and being more active. Small simple steps can help prevent Type 2 diabetes. One small change is to drink or tea or coffee without sugar another step may be to take a walk to do close errands or eating brown bread instead of white bread. Improved food choices, weight loss and personal exercise programs are great ways to reduce your risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.

Diabetes is a long term illness and often has an impact on ones mental health. Have  your been tested to see if you are a diabetic?? At the age of 30 I was tested and diagnosed as a diabetic. At the age of 47 I am still a Type 2 diabetic and living with medication, diets and good health choices.
