November- Diabetes Awareness
The American Diabetes Association recommends some simple steps to help lower the risk for Type 2 diabetes. Maintaining a healthy weight can help with prevention. Along with a healthy weight, it is suggested to have low blood pressure, healthy cholesterol, and low blood glucose. It is also crucial to eat a well-balanced diet and participate in physical activity.
Type 2 diabetes doesn’t always show symptoms, however some symptoms to look for are frequent urination, feeling frequently thirsty, blurry vision, extreme fatigue, cuts/bruises that take a long amount of time to heal, and tingling, pain, numbness in the hands or feet.
