November- Diabetes Awareness

     Diabetes comes in a few different forms, the most common is Type 2. Having Type 2 diabetes means that the body does not produce enough insulin. Insulin helps the body to use glucose. When glucose builds up in the blood because insulin isn’t being produced, it can damage the eyes, kidneys, nerves, and heart.
     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.

Breastfeeding is one of the greatest benefits you can do as a mother for your baby.  There are situations where the mother cannot breastfeed and formula is the only option, in that case this website gives good advice on what formula is going to be the best for the baby.  http://www.babycenter.com/0_how-to-buy-baby-formula_1334669.bc

There are many benefits of breastfeeding for both the mother and the baby.  Many studies have been done showing that breast milk will help increase the baby’s IQ by three to five points in their infant stages of life.  The breast milk nutrients change as the baby grows and is essential for proper development.  Breast milk also helps build the baby’s immune system which helps to prevent ear infections earlier on in their lives and is easily digestible for the baby.

One of the biggest pros for the mom is the fact that breast milk is free and portable!  Although it is a huge commitment for the mother to breast feed, it can result in saving a good chunk of money to use for other baby supplies.  Another benefit is the fact that the mother will burn more calories while breastfeeding which results as weight loss and also aids in helping reduce the uterus size.  Losing the extra baby weight can be difficult to do but breastfeeding can improve your ability to lose the weight.  This also creates an opportunity for the mother and the baby to bond with one another.
