Diabetes and heart disease

Did you know that high blood pressure, high cholesterol, age, lack of exercise, being overweight, belonging to certain ethnic groups can put a person at a higher risk of developing Type II diabetes? 

Do you realize that complications of diabetes include heart disease, stroke, kidney damage, blindness, amputation, neuropathy, birth defects, spontaneous abortion, risk to the newborn and the mother?

The CDC estimates the cost of caring for diabetes was $174 billion in 2007

What can be done? Take care of yourself and your loved ones. According to the American Diabetes Association, "Just 30 minutes a day of moderate physical activity, coupled with a 5-10% reduction in body weight, produced a 58% reduction in diabetes."

So, eat healthy and get out there and exercise!
