Do you know the real cost of diabetes? This is Judy Gaman and this is your Stay Young Medical Minute. Did you know that over 8% of our population suffers from diabetes? It not only costs our country a small fortune in health expenses, it can cost the individual about 6 years off of their life. The price of diabetes is just too high! We should all be working together to avoid getting the disease in the first place. You can start by exercising regularly and maintaining a healthy weight, but remember, the scale doesn’t tell the whole story. You don’t have to be obese to suffer from diabetes, so watch what you eat and avoid sugary snacks and packaged and processed foods. Choose fresh fruits and vegetables and be sure to get plenty of lean protein. Avoid pointless snacking and eat at structured times. Together we can save ourselves and our families from the devastation of diabetes, but we have to put in the effort.
