DIABETES

Never Takes A Break

And Neither Do We

 

URGENT Medicaid information- : YOUR RIGHT TO KNOW!

Read The Columbus Dispatch article, "Sunshine laws newsletter not cheery reading", (page 1) (page 2) 

 

Diabetes is a challenging, serious chronic disease and its management requires constant attention, 24-hours-a-day, 7-days-a-week, 365-days-a-year.  We partner with the individual with diabetes to address their needs in a holistic way.  Some people have little or dated knowledge about diabetes self-care; sometimes, people have the knowledge, but can become overwhelmed trying to put all they have learned into practice.  Our role is to provide ongoing education, support, and motivation to our clients of all ages. We want to help you feel confident and competent to handle all of the challenges diabetes presents.

We are committed to providing long-term personalized support for people with diabetes in our community, particularly for those who often have no other place to go for information

Are You the 1 in 4 Who Doesn't Know?

More than 29 million Americans have diabetes - 3 million more than estimated in 2010, as reported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  One in four people has diabetes and doesn't know it.  This is very serious because people with diabetes are at an increased risk of developing serious health complications including vision loss, heart disease, stroke, kidney failure, amputation of toes, feet or legs, and premature death.

One in three adults in the United States - 86 million - has pre-diabetes, where their blood glucose levels are higher than normal but not elevated enough to be diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.  Without weight loss and moderate physical activity, 15-30%  of those adults will develop type 2 diabetes within five years!

"These new numbers are alarming and underscore the need for an increased focus on reducing the burden of diabetes in our country," said Ann Albright, Ph. D., R.D., director of DCD's Division of Diabetes Translation.  "Diabetes is costly in both human and economic terms.  It's urgent that we take swift action  to effectively treat and prevent this serious disease."

Perhaps you or a family member have been diagnosed with diabetes and would like to ask a question or find out more information about diabetes education or support groups.  We are healthcare professionals that give general suggestions and are not to replace your medical care team. You should consult your doctor or your healthcare team for urgent or critical concerns.
