November Monthly Awareness Polish Box: Diabetes Awareness

***Discount Samples***

Hey y’all, welcome back. Today I have the newest Monthly Awareness Polish Box focusing on diabetes. National Diabetes Awareness Month is November and World Diabetes Day on Nov. 14. This disease plagues a lot of families and hits close to home. Today we will get to the bottom of diabetes finding what it is, stats and figures and what you can do to lower your risk.

What is diabetes?

Diabetes is a disease that occurs when your blood glucose, also called blood sugar, is too high. Blood glucose is your main source of energy and comes from the food you eat. Insulin, a hormone made by the pancreas, helps glucose from food get into your cells to be used for energy. Sometimes your body doesn’t make enough—or any—insulin or doesn’t use insulin well. Glucose then stays in your blood and doesn’t reach your cells.

Over time, having too much glucose in your blood can cause health problems. Although diabetes has no cure, you can take steps to manage your diabetes and stay healthy

What are the different types of diabetes?

The most common types of diabetes are type 1, type 2, and gestational diabetes.

Type 1 diabetes

If you have type 1 diabetes, your body does not make insulin. Your immune system attacks and destroys the cells in your pancreas that make insulin. Type 1 diabetes is usually diagnosed in children and young adults, although it can appear at any age. People with type 1 diabetes need to take insulin every day to stay alive.

Type 2 diabetes

If you have type 2 diabetes, your body does not make or use insulin well. You can develop type 2 diabetes at any age, even during childhood. However, this type of diabetes occurs most often in middle-aged and older people. Type 2 is the most common type of diabetes.

Gestational diabetes

Gestational diabetes develops in some women when they are pregnant. Most of the time, this type of diabetes goes away after the baby is born. However, if you’ve had gestational diabetes, you have a greater chance of developing type 2 diabetes later in life. Sometimes diabetes diagnosed during pregnancy is actually type 2 diabetes.

How common is diabetes?

As of 2015, 30.3 million people in the United States, or 9.4 percent of the population, had diabetes. More than 1 in 4 of them didn’t know they had the disease. Diabetes affects 1 in 4 people over the age of 65. About 90-95 percent of cases in adults are type 2 diabetes.

New Cases: 1.5 million Americans are diagnosed with diabetes every year.

  1. I always enjoy your swatches, and a couple cute polishes there; I am thrilled they offer them separately for peeps who cannot afford a whole box.. but I would be remiss if I did not mention that I thought it was such a well-thought out review with all the info, didn’t really expect that and I imagine the info might help someone out, kudos!
