Living with diabetes

-A A +A

By Becky Rutherford


Diabetes is a complicated disease that is all too common today.  This disease affects 25.8 million people in our country alone.  

People with Diabetes don’t produce enough insulin.  This causes high levels of blood glucose, which can lead to Diabetes complications.  

However, it is possible to control Diabetes and live well with the disease.  The Los Alamos Heart Council is pleased to provide education on this topic to our community.  

The council is hosting its annual community seminar at 5:30 pm on Tuesday at the First Baptist Church, located at 2200 Diamond Drive.

In addition to a light supper, served from 5:30-6:30 pm, and door prizes, the seminar will feature a presentation by Dr. Madhavi Garimella, a board certified Endocrinologist with  Medical Associates of Northern New Mexico.  

The presentation will be held from 6:30 to 8:00 pm.  1.5 CE credit is available free to nurses for attending.  

Dr. Garimella will focus on learning about the different types of Diabetes, as well as the various ways to control and manage Diabetes.  

Diabetes can be a deadly disease, but there are many ways to control it.  In addition to medication prescribed by your doctor, Diabetes can be controlled by proper exercise and eating choices.
