Diabetes Information

Diabetes Management 101 is meant as an introductory look into diabetes or diabetes mellitus as it is also known, and how it affects the lives of those who have it, and steps you can take to live a better life. We believe that the first and most critical step in the fight against diabetes is education, and this web site is dedicated to those that have been newly diagnosed or feel they may be at risk for diabetes. We hope to provide all information about diabetes as we can, or to give as much information on diabetes as necessary in order to give newly diagnosed diabetics a good start into understanding the disease and to specifically show the link between the health of the cardiovascular system and the development of the complications of diabetes. We are continually adding more information on diabetes, healthy eating for diabetics, and links to books and products diabetics can use to improve their quality of life. It IS possible for you or a loved one to live a richer fuller life despite diabetes, and our hope is that the information found on this web site will better help you arm yourself to win! By educating ourselves, those of us already afflicted with diabetes, can more effectively manage it and not let it keep us from enjoying life more. We also believe that the diabetes information found here can help those who are not affected by diabetes to prevent or significantly reduce their own chances of developing it or be in a better position to help a loved one or friend that already has.

Diabetes statistics

According to The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, diabetes affects the lives of approximately 23.6 million children and adults in the United States, or 7.8% of the population. Statistics on diabetes tell us that out of those 23 million people, 17.9 million have already been diagnosed, but the remaining 5.7 million people (or nearly one quarter) are unaware that they even have the disease. Worldwide an estimated 246 million people are now afflicted with diabetes, with 3.2 million dying from it every year. By 2025, it has been forecasted that 380 million people will be afflicted. Although the exact causes of diabetes are still not fully known or understood, it is clear that in today's world many of our lifestyle choices, dietary habits and even toxins in the environment are greatly contributing to our chances of developing diabetes. If left undiscovered and untreated, diabetes can have devastating effects including blindness,amputation, and even death. Fortunately medical science surrounding diabetes has greatly improved our understanding of how it affects the body and now offers preventative measures and treatments unavailable in the past. Although nothing can take the place of the expertise and advise of your primary care physician, it is our hope to provide as much critical knowledge and resources as possible to help you or a loved one to better manage life with diabetes.

We are always looking to add to this web site and are currently working on several new sections that we hope to post in the very near future! Including Food and nutrition, directories, blogs, articles, visitor submitted recipes and more coming soon. So have a look around and once again welcome!
