Children with Diabetes

I found a great website called Children with Diabetes. Children with Diabetis is a great site about…you guessed it, children with diabetes. The web pages are dedicated to developing and increasing the awareness of diabetes, especially in children. There is a lot of good information for the families of children with diabetes so the environment of the children can remain supportive and positive. Children with Diabetes Inc. has also recently joined the Johnson and Johnson family of companies as part of the Diabetes Franchise. Take a gander at the site when you get a second.

Symptoms of Diabetes

The level of diabetes is increasing in the United States today with so many people neglecting their health. According to the American Diabetes Association, diabetes often goes unnoticed in the beginning because of the many seemingly harmless symptoms. Take a look at the link above for the most common signs because early detection and treatment of type 2 diabetes can lead to a smaller chance of getting heart disease, nerve damage, blindness or worse. Awareness is the key in the battle against diabetes.

Diabetic Shoes

So many times have I gotten the question of what exactly diabetic shoes are. Diabetic shoes are specially designed for those diagnosed with diabetes. The shoes offer support against the circulation problems that come with diabetes. They are extremely soft and supportive to alleviate any pain or breaking of the skin on the foot.
