According to the American Diabetes Association, more than 25% of adults 65 and older, have diabetes. At times symptoms of diabetes are over looked in Seniors, because they are grouped into symptoms of “normal aging”.
Two types of diabetes:
- Type 1 Diabetes – Is when a person cannot produce insulin. This type can affect adults as well as children.
- Type 2 Diabetes – Is when a person’s body becomes insulin resistant. This is the more common type
It is vital to have your blood sugar level checked regularly to assess if you are pre-diabetic. This is when sugar levels are elevated but no so elevated to qualify for Diabetic diagnosis.
If you are pre-diabetic, to decrease your risk of becoming Diabetic a life style change will need to be initiated. Exercise and eating a healthy diet will decrease your risk of diabetes.
