Hoy Health Steps Up for National Diabetes Month
Affordable medications and diabetes management kits for underserved populations and Hispanics
Almost 90 percent of people living with type 2 diabetes are overweight or obese. They also have added pressure on their body’s ability to use insulin to properly control blood sugar levels, making it more likely that they will develop diabetes. This makes the body more resistant to insulin, straining the pancreas and potentially speeding up the arrival of type 2 diabetes.
In recognition of November as National Diabetes Month, Hoy Health LLC recommends three steps to addressing diabetes:
- Early detection and A1c monitoring – Early detection can reduce the risk of serious complications, such as premature heart disease and stroke, blindness, limb amputations, and kidney failure. The A1C test can diagnose prediabetes and diabetes by measuring average blood glucose control for the previous two to three months.
- Diet and lifestyle changes – Experts suggest eating healthy, staying active, seeing the doctor at least twice a year, managing stress, stopping smoking and limiting alcohol.
- Medication and treatment adherence– Non-adherence to medications is a critical problem leading to increased morbidity and mortality. Physicians play a key role in improving patient adherence to medications and lifestyle.
