Protect your body from diabetes complications
The holidays are already upon us. Just as you are planning for holiday
get-togethers, sharing, parties and gifts, don’t forget to plan ahead
to take care of your diabetes.
Planning and preparation are at least 50 percent
of your diabetes management. As things get busier with more to do, be sure to stay on track with your diabetes management. Continuing your daily physical activity program is essential, and our weather is perfect for being outside and getting exercise.
What does Dr. Hagen say about diabetes in the Central Valley?”
I have been shocked at the sheer number of people with diabetes
and its complications, particularly in the Central Valley.
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.
I look forward to helping you return to the activities you love, and to maintaining healthy control of your diabetes, working closely with VMC’s certified diabetes educator Susan Smith, Ph.D.
