November is Diabetes Awarness Month

Take Action Now to Control Your Diabetes By Susan J. Smith, Ph.D., CDE

If you want to see a change, you must make a change. For diabetes control, making change earlier is better. 

Diabetes is a progressive disease - so the more out-of-control the sugars are, the faster the diabetes will progress.  In fact, the first two years after diagnosis may be the most important time to gain better control of the diabetes.

Controlling portions of food, losing weight and increasing physical activity are all critical pieces of the puzzle. Read full article.  


Do you have diabetes? Protect your feet!
By Jeffrey Hagen, DPM

Uncontrolled diabetes causes damage all over the body and can lead to nerve and circulatory damage to the feet and lower legs. In fact, about 73,000 amputations were performed in the U.S. in one year alone due to uncontrolled diabetes. Learn more about VMC's diabetes team at www.vmchealth.com.
