World Diabetes Day

Today the 250 million people worldwide who have diabetes will help celebrate World Diabetes Day. The goal of the day is to gain attention for the need to improve care, prevent the disease in those at risk and find a cure. This year the theme is children with diabetes. Unfortunately, the epidemic is increasing in children. This includes Type 1 Diabetes as well as Type 2 Diabetes. Leading a healthy lifestyle can prevent the onset of Type 2 Diabetes. 
One of the main focuses of today is awareness. So please look at the following symptoms and if you are concerned about yourself or any family member please call your doctor ASAP:
extreme thirst
frequent urination
weight loss
lack of energy
