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.

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.

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.
