November is National Diabetes Awareness Month

By Tambra Sellers, RN

According to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, diabetes affects approximately 30 million people nationwide. It is a chronic disease in which blood glucose (sugar) levels are above normal.

In general, people with diabetes have problems converting food to energy. There are two types of diabetes, Type 1 and Type 2. Type 1 diabetes, formally called juvenile diabetes, is a disease of the immune system, the body’s system for fighting infection. With this type of diabetes the insulin-producing cells (beta cells) are attacked by the immune system preventing the pancreas from being able to produce insulin. Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of the disease and is common in adults, but can occur at any age.
