The ABCs of Diabetes:

  • A1c test reveals what your average blood sugar has been running over the past 3 months.  According to the National Institutes of Health, for every percentage point decrease in A1c, risk for eye, kidney, or nerve complications are reduced by 40%.
  • Blood pressure indicates risk for heart disease when elevated.  The American Diabetes Association (ADA) recommends a blood pressure less than 130/80 for those with diabetes.
  • Cholesterol that is commonly called the bad cholesterol is known as LDL cholesterol.  This bad cholesterol increases risk for heart disease.  The ADA recommends a LDL cholesterol level below 100 mg/dl for those with diabetes.
  • Ask for these tests at your next doctor's visit.

    Featured Article:  "What's the difference between Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes?"

    Type 1 Diabetes is a less common form of diabetes, affecting 5-10% of cases.  Those with Type 1 do not produce insulin and must inject the hormone.  Type 2 Diabetes is much more common, affecting 90-95% of cases.  People with Type 2 do produce insulin but the hormone is not very effective.  Research is looking at lifestyle risk factors leading up to Type 2 diagnosis...

    Exercise Tip:

    Minimize impact on joints with shoes designed for your exercise/activity.  If you walk for exercise, purchase walking shoes (and if you jog or run purchase running shoes).  Shoes designed for a specific activity can help prevent injury to joints and reduce foot, ankle, and knee stress. Replace running and walking shoes every three months.  *Tennis shoes & cross-trainer shoes are not the same as running shoes and walking shoes.
