Diabetes is caused by elevated blood sugars due to improper insulin use or production. 26 million Americans live with diabetes and an additional seven million do not know they have the disease.
There is no cure for diabetes. Proper diet with exercise and medical care is the key to treatment. Uncontrolled diabetes can lead to blindness, cardiovascular disease, kidney damage and limb amputations. A podiatrist can help to reduce the risks of the devastating complications which can affect the lower extremities.
"Stay active, eat well and live a healthy lifestyle to keep your diabetes under control." Dr. Rassool.
Type 1 Diabetes is usually diagnosed at an early age, affects less than 10% of diabetics and is caused by a lack of insulin.
Type 2 Diabetes is the most common type of diabetes, usually diagnosed in adults and is caused by too much glucose in the blood.
