April is American Diabetes Month
Diabetes is a group of diseases that deal with how your body utilizes blood sugar, also known as glucose. Glucose provides energy to our cells; without it, we cannot function. There is Type I and Type II diabetes and it is important to know the significant difference between the two. According to the CDC, about 25% of people over 65 years of age have diabetes. As such, it is important for us to become familiar with the sign, symptoms, preventive measures, and treatments for our senior loved ones. The CDC in conjunction with the American Diabetes Association has a quick diabetes risk test you can take.
