Affected by diabetes mmanaging glucose levels is an everyday task for Mrs. Carter Cade. It is her goal through awareness activities surrounding American Diabetes Month will call greater attention of how we take care of ourselves can greatly impact diabetes and to support the research for a cure. Because there is a large percentage of the minority populations who are affected by diabetes, increasing awareness, and access to education are key to the prevention and management.

It is reported that diabetes increases your risk for many serious health problems. Over time, high sugar levels damage the body and can lead to the multiple health problems associated with diabetes. Persistently high sugar levels behave like a slow-acting poison. High sugar levels and damaged blood vessels cause the multitude of complications that can come with diabetes. The American Diabetes Association’s goals for glucose control in people with diabetes are sugar levels of 70 to 130 mg/dL before meals, and less than 180 mg/dL after meals. Some complications associated with diabetes are heart attack, kidney disease or failure, vision loss or blindness, neuropathy or nerve damage etc. http://www.webmd.com/diabetes/how-sugar-affects-diabetes?page=2#1
