Dr. Pascual De Santis, Endocrinologist with Baptist Health South Florida, mentions the guidelines of American Diabetes Association to diagnose diabetes. “It's basically a fasting sugar or glucose, blood glucose, of 126 and above, hemoglobin a1c of 6.5 and above (the percentage of the hemoglobin that has a sugar attached to it and is representative of the average of blood sugars in the last three months), a two-hour glucose tolerance test is performed after a glucose challenge platoon of two hundred and above or a random blood glucose with symptoms of 200 or above so those are the main diagnostic criteria,” he says. The specialist affirms the treatment will depend on the severity of diabetes.

PA Foot and Ankle Associates is proud to sponsor Carly Lenett, the Lehigh Valley's Youth Ambassador for the American Diabetes Association, in her fight against Type 1 Diabetes. In this short video, Rhonda Heier from the ADA interviews Carly about how she controls her blood glucose levels, what she does for fun, who her heroes are, and how much money she'd like to raise this year for diabetes research. When Carly was three, she was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. That began her mission to raise awareness and funds for diabetes research. In 2012, when Carly was 7, she swam 100 laps of a full length high school pool and raised over $9,000. In 2013, alongside Olympic silver medalist Kristy Kowal, Carly swam 110 laps (more than 1.5 miles) of the same pool and raised $11,000. In 2014, she and Kowal plan on swimming 200 laps and raising $15,000. If Carly meets her fundraising goal this year, she will have raised $35,000 in the fight to cure diabetes!

Health officials urge us to ‘know our numbers’ in particular when it comes to indicators of heart disease. But many doctors find people are clueless when it comes to numbers related to diabetes. “We need to know our HDL, LDL and our cholesterol but you need to know your hemoglobin A1c,” says Dr. Yorke. Dr. Victoria Yorke is a primary care physician with Lee Memorial Health System. Blood sugar is a good start, but she advises her patients to get a fuller picture. “I tell them they need a test called a hemoglobin A1c. And that tells you not just what your sugar is that day, but what it’s been for the last three months,” says Dr. Yorke. The A1c measures your glucose over time. The lifespan of a red blood cell is about 120 days. By dissecting the sugar attached to it, doctors get an average read on your blood sugar. Used for diabetes management, the American Diabetes Association recommends it as a diagnostic tool because it looks beyond blood sugar fluctuations. “You can have a normal fasting sugar, meaning under 100 and your hemoglobin A1c is elevated, between 5.7 and 6.4 you’re considered pre-diabetic; and you should know that number,” says Dr. Yorke. It’s estimated 86-million Americans are pre-diabetic. Getting a real read on their risk may provide a good opportunity to better their overall health. “What is the number one killer in this country? Vascular disease. One of the biggest culprits for vascular disease is long-term diabetes. It’s not having high sugar just once- it’s over time,” says Dr. Yorke. Making it pay to know your numbers.

a new study finds inactivity is associated with greater risk of prediabetes, even for adults with a healthy weight. researchers from the University of Florida said the discovery could help explain why nearly one-third of slim American adults have elevated blood sugar but not full-blown diabetes. It was found that many people with a healthy weight are not metabolically healthy. researchers analyzed data from over 1,000 people, aged 20 and older, in England who all had a healthy weight and no diagnosis of diabetes. Those with an inactive lifestyle were more likely to have a blood sugar level of 5.7 or above. This is the number which the American Diabetes Association considers prediabetes. http://www.upi.com/Health_News/2017/01/27/Slim-but-sedentary-Risk-of-prediabetes-may-rise/8411485546620/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

After the speeches, the crowd of more than 60 people formed a circle at the base of the tower, and as the blue light washed over the bricks, bubbles were blown up to the top as symbols of the 284 million people living with diabetes worldwide. The event followed a research tour at the center's laboratories and a panel discussion by UF diabetes experts.

There is a strong correlation between cardiovascular disease and diabetes; in fact, the American Heart Association considers diabetes to be one of the major controllable risk factors for cardiovascular disease. “What is the number one killer in this country? Vascular disease. One of the biggest culprits for vascular disease is long-term diabetes,” says Dr. Victoria Yorke, a primary care physician with Lee Memorial Health System. Adults with diabetes are 2 to 4 times more likely to have heart disease than people without diabetes. In addition to knowing and monitoring their blood pressure and cholesterol levels, another test is recommended to reduce their heart disease risk. “I tell them they need a test called a hemoglobin A1C. And that tells you not just what your sugar is that day, but what it’s been for the last three months,” says Dr. Yorke. The A1C test measures your glucose – or blood sugar - over time. The test result gives a measure of how well your body has controlled the amount of sugar in the blood over the past two to three months. Research has shown that the risk of diabetes, heart disease, and death rises with higher levels of A1C, and even a small decrease in A1C can reduce your risk of heart disease. “You can have a normal fasting sugar, meaning under 100 and your hemoglobin A1C is elevated, between 5.7 and 6.4 you’re considered pre-diabetic; and you should know that number,” says Dr. Yorke. The American Diabetes Association recommends that people with diabetes who are meeting treatment goals and have stable blood glucose levels have the A1C test twice a year.

TOP 6 Foods that can HELP PREVENT DIABETES http://bit.ly/2zQfvVD: EATING These FOODS to Protect You AGAINST DIABETES http://bit.ly/2zvA5Kf. Diabetes is an epidemic in the United States, with about 29 million people who have it, another 8 million who are undiagnosed and 86 million who are considered pre-diabetic, according to the American Diabetes Association. Type 2 diabetes http://bit.ly/2hlATqk, the most common form, is a disease in which the body’s cells don’t use insulin properly. At first, the pancreas makes more insulin to get glucose into the cells, but over time, the pancreas can’t make enough to keep blood glucose levels normal http://bit.ly/2zOUgmZ and the result is type 2 diabetes. #Type-2-diabetes increases a person’s risk for several health conditions including #high-blood-pressure, heart disease and stroke. It’s also responsible for as many as 12 percent of deaths in the U.S., three times higher than previous estimates, a January 2017 study in the journal PLOS ONE found. Although genetics can increase your chances of developing type 2 diabetes, both diet and exercise also play a big role. In fact, people with pre-diabetes who lost just 5 to 7 percent of their body weight reduced their risk by 54 percent, a study out of John Hopkins in July 2013 found. Here, experts weigh in with 10 foods that balance your blood sugar and can #prevent-diabetes: 1. Apples You might think fruit is off the menu because of its sugar content, but fruit is filled with vitamins and nutrients that can help ward off diabetes. Apples are one of the best fruits you can eat because they’re rich in quercetin, a plant pigment. Quercetin helps the body secrete insulin more efficiently and wards off insulin resistance, which occurs when the body has to make more and more insulin to help glucose enter the cells. Insulin resistance is the hallmark characteristic of type 2 diabetes. “It’s filled with antioxidants, and also there’s fiber in the fruit that naturally slows the digestion of the sugars,” Karen Ansel, a registered dietitian nutritionist in Syosset, New York, and author of “Healing Superfoods for Anti-Aging,” told Fox News. But be sure to eat apples with the skin because this park of the fruit has six times more quercetin than its flesh. 2. Yogurt Eating a serving of yogurt every day can cut your risk for type 2 diabetes by 18 percent, a November 2014 study out of the Harvard School of Public Health found. Although it’s not clear whether that’s because yogurt has probiotics, one thing is for sure: The snack, especially the Greek variety, is high in protein, which makes you feel satiated and prevents large blood sugar spikes, Marina Chaparro, a spokeswoman for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND), and a certified diabetes educator in Miami, Florida, told Fox News. Although yogurt contains natural sugars, be sure to read labels to avoid excess sugar, and select varieties that have 12 to 15 grams of carbohydrates. 3. Asparagus Low in calories and high in fiber, asparagus and other types of green leafy vegetables are rich in antioxidants, which reduce inflammation and can balance blood sugar levels. In fact, people who ate one and half extra servings of green leafy vegetables a day cut their risk for type 2 diabetes by 14 percent, an August 2010 meta-analysis in the British Medical Journal found. 4. Beans and legumes Studies suggest that people who follow a vegetarian or vegan diet are less likely to develop type 2 diabetes than their meat-eating counterparts. Chickpeas, lentils and beans are all low in calories and saturated fat, have a low glycemic index and a ton of fiber, which takes a long time to digest, so blood sugar doesn’t rise as quickly, Chaparro said. In fact, eating a cup of beans a day has been shown to #reduce-blood-sugar, an October 2010 study published in the journal Archives of Internal Medicine found. 5. Chia seeds Because type 2 diabetes can lead to heart disease and stroke, it’s also a good idea to eat foods like chia seeds. Two tablespoons of chia seeds provides 4 grams of protein and 11 grams of fiber, as well as heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids. Chia seeds are also versatile: Add them to oatmeal or muffins, blend them into a smoothie, or make a chia pudding. 6. Berries Strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and blueberries are all low in calories and carbohydrates, and have a low glycemic index to keep your blood sugar steady. Although they all contain fiber, raspberries and blackberries in particular take the lead to fill you up.

Connection Between Gastroenteritis and Diabetes'' ＬＩＫＥ | ＣＯＭＭＥＮＴ | ＳＨＡＲＥ | ＳＵＢＳＣＲＩＢＥ Subscribe For Notification: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCSDjneI7_h1ZHUWMG7-BPLw/featured Many people with diabetes experience a well-known condition called diabetic neuropathy, which affects the nerves and causes numbness and tingling in the feet. Yet you might not know that a digestive disorder called gastro paresis is another form of neuropathy that can affect you when you have diabetes. “Gastroparesis is a condition in which the normal emptying of the stomach is impaired, either slowing down or not emptying at all,” says Dr. Lorena Lewy-Alterbaum, an endocrinologist with Memorial Regional Hospital South and in private practice in Hollywood, Florida. In fact, it often goes undiagnosed until the patient must go to the hospital for uncontrolled vomiting, she explains. There are several other symptoms of gastro paresis, including nausea, reflux, bloating, upper abdominal pain, weight loss and feeling full early on when eating. It can be hard to control your blood sugar when you have gastro paresis. Those with diabetes may be more prone to gastro paresis because they are more likely to have problems with their nervous system. “Nerves, which control muscle contractions of the stomach, can be affected, leading to gastro paresis,” says endocrinologist Dr. Kashif Munir, an associate professor of medicine at the University of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore. “If severe, it can lead to continuous vomiting, very erratic blood sugar control and repeated hospitalizations.” The vomiting, nausea and stomach obstructions that are part of gastro paresis are caused by masses of food that harden in the stomach, according to the American Diabetes Association.
