Diabetes Awareness Month

Updated: Jan 6, 2022

Thank you for visiting CCACC has put efforts in raising the public’s awareness of the importance of preventive care. In November 2021, we will promote preventing and managing diabetes.

Diabetes is a chronic disease that can occur if your body stops producing insulin or the body does not use insulin. Insulin is an essential hormone that helps your body to keep normal blood sugar levels. If you have type 1 diabetes, your body stops producing insulin, you need to take insulin daily. If you have type 2 diabetes, your body does not use insulin well. Preventing type 1 diabetes is unknown per CDC. However, type 2 diabetes can be prevented or delayed with healthy lifestyles, such as maintaining a healthy weight, regular exercise, and eating healthy food daily. According to the CDC, more than 1 in 3 Americans’ blood sugar levels are higher than normal which increases the risk for heart disease and stroke. It is estimated that 34.2 million people in the United States have diabetes. CDC indicates that Diabetes is the 7th leading cause of death and the number 1 cause of chronic kidney disease and blindness. Uncontrolled diabetes can also cause lower limb amputations per CDC. If you have prediabetes, a sedentary lifestyle, family history of diabetes, you are at risk for developing diabetes. If you are overweight and 45 years and older, you are also at risk of developing diabetes.

At CCACC, we help patients identify risk factors and provide education and screening tools to prevent and manage diabetes. According to the CDC, 1 in 5 Americans does not know if they have diabetes, and 84% of people with prediabetes do not know if they have elevated blood sugar levels. We provide hemoglobin A1C which is a diagnostic blood work to screen diabetes. You can prevent and reverse prediabetes with a healthy lifestyle. Call us today to make an appointment.

糖尿病是一种慢性疾病,如果您的身体停止产生胰岛素或身体不能使用胰岛素,就会发生这种疾病。胰岛素是一种必不可少的激素,可帮助您的身体保持正常的血糖水平。如果您患有 1 型糖尿病,您的身体会停止产生胰岛素,您需要每天服用胰岛素。如果您患有 2 型糖尿病,您的身体不能很好地使用胰岛素。 CDC 尚不清楚如何预防 1 型糖尿病。但是,可以通过健康的生活方式来预防或延缓 2 型糖尿病,例如保持健康的体重、定期锻炼和每天吃健康的食物。

根据疾病预防控制中心的数据,超过三分之一的美国人的血糖水平高于正常水平,这会增加患心脏病和中风的风险。据估计,美国有 3420 万人患有糖尿病。 CDC 指出,糖尿病是第 7 大死亡原因,也是导致慢性肾病和失明的第 1 大原因。根据 CDC,不受控制的糖尿病也可能导致下肢截肢

如果您患有糖尿病前期、久坐不动的生活方式、糖尿病家族史,您就有患糖尿病的风险。如果您超重且年龄在 45 岁及以上,您也有患糖尿病的风险。

在 CCACC,我们帮助患者识别风险因素并提供教育和筛查工具来预防和管理糖尿病。根据疾病预防控制中心的数据,五分之一的美国人不知道他们是否患有糖尿病,84% 的糖尿病前期患者不知道他们的血糖水平是否升高。我们提供血红蛋白 A1C,这是一种用于筛查糖尿病的诊断性血液工作。您可以通过健康的生活方式预防和逆转糖尿病前期症狀。
