Diabetes Awareness Day - March 27
Please wear gray this Wednesday, March 27th!
- Join the Wellness Awareness team in spreading Diabetes Awareness. Diabetes is a very serious disease that affects over 30 million Americans. There are 2 main types of diabetes, type 1 and type 2. Some women develop diabetes during pregnancy. This third type is called gestational diabetes.
- Type 1 diabetes is a chronic condition in which the pancreas produces little or no insulin. Insulin is a hormone needed to allow sugar (glucose) to enter cells to produce energy. Symptoms include increased thirst, frequent urination, hunger, fatigue, and blurred vision. About 80 people get diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in the United States each day.
- Type 2 diabetes is a chronic condition that affects the way your body metabolizes sugar (glucose) — an important source of fuel for your body. 90% of people living with diabetes have type 2. Unlike type 1, type 2 diabetes can be prevented. Maintaining a healthy weight, moderate physical exercise, and a healthy balanced diet are all things that you can do to prevent Type 2 diabetes. Don’t skip breakfast! A healthy breakfast lowers your risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.
