What is Diabetes?

'Diabetes' highlighted in orange

According to the American Diabetes Association, approximately 25.8 million individuals—or 8.3% of the United States population—suffer from diabetes as of 2011. Unfortunately, only 18.8 million of these individuals are diagnosed and have sufficient information regarding the disease. Fortunately, Southern Hills Hospital and Medical Center offers several diabetes classes to help patients and consumers boost their knowledge.

Diabetes can be a serious disease when not kept under control, leading to such complications as blindness, heart disease, stroke, and death. That’s why Southern Hills Hospital and Medical Center offers a number of free, informational classes for adults suffering from type I, type II, gestational, or pre-diabetes. Our diabetes classes include those regarding proper nutrition, medication usage, and even a comprehensive overview of diabetes management.

The most common form of diabetes is type I diabetes, which occurs when the body does not make enough insulin to help the body to convert food into energy. Without the proper production and use of insulin, an individual’s sugar or glucose taken from food cannot enter the cells, starving the body of energy and interfering with their blood sugar levels.

There are several risk factors associated with type I diabetes, including:

  • Family history
  • Being male, as it is less common in females
  • Being of Northern European, Mediterranean, African American, or Hispanic ethnicity
  • Obesity during childhood
  • Bottle-feeding or breastfeeding for short time
  • Suffering from autoimmune illnesses such as Graves’ disease, Addison’s disease, Celiac disease, pernicious anemia, and Hashimoto’s disease

The signs and symptoms of type I diabetes include:

  • Weight loss
  • Extreme thirst or hunger
  • Increased urination
  • Fatigue and weakness
  • Blurred vision
  • Headaches
  • Irritability

If you’re exhibiting any one of the above symptoms, then it may be time to learn more about diabetes and your treatment options. Let our physicians and highly-trained nurses with Southern Hills Hospital and Medical Center educate you on the risk factors and treatment options available for diabetes by visiting our website or by calling (702) 880-2100.
