How much do you know about Diabetes and blood sugar control?

Diabetes is a type of vascular disease – a disease affecting vessels. Where are vessels? Everywhere. For example, the heart, legs, feet, brain, kidneys, and eyes. Keeping Diabetes under control can lessen the risk of vascular complications and, in some situations, reverse the progression.

How extreme do you need to be in terms of food and exercise? Consistency wins over ‘trying’ something for a short time.

Whether you’ve committed to one plant-forward meal a day, an extra walk in the evenings, or reduced the number of times to order takeout, the action’s consistency matters most.

Small changes can make a big impact on your health journey.

Here are 5 Facts About Diabetes you may not know:

  • Diabetes has been known for about 3,000 years. Before just a few decades ago, managing blood sugar was much more difficult than today.
  • Diabetes can affect your oral health: bacteria in the mouth feed off the excess sugar in the saliva, leading to the development of plaque and tartar.
  • Knowing your Hemoglobin A1C level, a blood test that measures how high your blood sugar has been over the past 3 months, can alert you and your provider to take early steps to reverse Diabetes progression. A Hemoglobin A1C level of 5.3 is enough to sound the prevention alarms!
  • About one-third of all people with diabetes do not know they have the disease.
  • Know your DNA. Clues to your blood sugar management lie in various gene patterns.
