Diabetes Education Month


Hello Take Care Community! Hope this months blog finds you all in good health! Just in time for the holidays, and all the goodies, this months blog is about:

 

To begin, Diabetes is a disease in which your blood sugar levels or blood glucose, are too high. Glucose comes from the foods we eat. In healthy individuals, the pancreas produces a hormone called insulin to get the glucose into cells to be used as energy. There are two types:


  • TYPE 1 DIABETES: The body does not make insulin. This is also know as Juvenile Diabetes because it is diagnosed early in life.  This form of diabetes is not reversible, requiring life long insulin use.

  • TYPE 2 DIABETES: The body does not make or produce insulin well, resulting in high levels of glucose staying in the blood.

This form is much more common, and can be controlled by diet and insulin as needed. (NIH: National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases)


Diabetes affects 25.8 million people of all ages, which is about 8.3 percent of the US population. About 7.0 million persons are undiagnosed (NDIC Diabetes Statistics)

Complications
Over time, having too much insulin in the blood causes damage to major organs and body systems such as the eyes, kidneys, and nerves. Risk for associated heart disease and stroke are higher in diabetics. (nlm.nih.gov/MedlinePlus : National 
Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases)

(Photo via: blog.myotcstore.com)
 
As with many other diseases you may be more at risk if you have a strong family history of the disease.  Per the Centers of Disease Control (CDC), other risk factors include: 

•    Obesity
•    Sedentary lifestyle
•    African American decent
•    High caloric/ sugar diet
•    High blood pressure
•    Abnormal cholesterol levels
 
Symptoms may go ignored or masked by other ailments but remain the same for many individuals.
 
 
Any persons with risk factors or symptoms are encouraged to see a primary care provider. A simple blood test called a Hemoglobin A1C can show if you have diabetes or at strong risk. Early recognition can prevent extensive complications.

As always, prevention is the key. Be well community and Happy Thanksgiving!

Most of the time gestational diabetes goes away after the baby is born. Even if the diabetes goes away you have a greater chance of getting diabetes and your child from that pregnancy is at future risk for obesity and type 2 diabetes.

Vanguard is a terrible brokerage. Their tools and website suck. Only go there if they have in house funds that you can't get elsewhere. Most brokers have similar index funds now though. Vanguard is member owned, not a for profit corporation, it's like a credit union. You can thank them for forcing the banks into being the good discount brokerages they are today but don't use em. I have IRAs there and will probably move em.

Type 1 diabetes occurs when your immune system, the body's system for fighting infection, attacks and destroys the insulin-producing beta cells of the pancreas. Scientists think type 1 diabetes is caused by genes and environmental factors, such as viruses, that might trigger the disease.
