November Is Diabetes Awareness Month!

One in 10 Americans have diabetes - that's more than 30 million people. And another 84 million adults in the United States are at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes.What is diabetes? Diabetes is a chronic metabolic disorder that disrupts the biochemical pathways involving carbohydrate, fat, and protein metabolism. 

There are three types of diabetes:

Type-1 diabetes is characterized as insulin dependent diabetes. The hormone insulin regulates the glucose in the bloodstream. This type is characterized as an autoimmune disease and primarily is diagnosed during childhood.

  • Type-2 diabetes affects 90% of all diagnosed persons with diabetes and is also characterized as non-insulin dependent diabetes. This hyperglycemia involves an impairment of insulin effectiveness, or insulin resistance. Blood sugar increases and becomes uncontrolled.
  • Type-3 diabetes occurs when the pancreas is over working during a pregnancy; this occurs in fourteen percent of all pregnant women. Although the condition reverses upon delivery, women diagnosed with type three diabetes are 9.6 times as likely to develop type-2 diabetes after age 40.

Although Diabetes is quickly becoming an epidemic in our society there is hope. Taking an integrative approach to diabetes management has shown significant strides. An integrative approach combines conventional medicine with evidence based alternative methods. Click Here to find out 7 foods that help control diabetes.
