Health Tip and Practice Info
November is Diabetes Awareness Month.
The American Diabetes Association (the ADA) estimates that one third of all children born in this country after 2000 will develop diabetes some time during their lives.
African Americans and Hispanics also have higher risks. Diet and exercise both can help prevent this growing epidemic.
Diabetes often goes undiagnosed because many of its symptoms seem so harmless and some adults notice no symptoms. Recent studies indicate that the early detection and treatment can decrease the chance of developing the complications of diabetes.
Symptoms include frequent urination, unusual thirst, extreme hunger, unusual weight loss, extreme fatigue and irritability, frequent infections, blurred vision, cuts/bruises that are slow to heal, tingling or numbness in the hands or feet, recurring skin, gum, or bladder infections.
If you have one or more of these symptoms, see your doctor right away. You can also take the ADA's Online Diabetes Risk Test by clicking here.

FLU SEASON IS HERE
A simple flu shot provided by your doctor can go a long way to shielding you and your family from unnecessary sickness. A flu shot is quick, inexpensive and relatively painless.
Meanwhile, you can practice these healthy tips to avoid catching a virus and to avoid spreading it to someone else.
Wash your hands frequently using soap and warm water.
Get plenty of rest, stay physically active and eat nutritious foods.
If you are sick, stay home. Drink fluids and avoid contact with others as much as possible.
Use tissues when you sneeze or cough. If you don't have tissues, cough or sneeze into your elbow to avoid getting germs on your hands, where they can spread easily.
