Plan now to attend the “Do Well, Be Well with Diabetes” program at the Wilson County Extension Office, located in the Wilson County Courthouse basement in Floresville. Classes will be on Thursdays from April 19 through May 17, from 6-8 p.m. There will be a one-time fee of $10.

Today, type 2 diabetes is a fact of life for millions of people, reaching epidemic proportions of 120 million worldwide. According to figures from the American Diabetes Association, more than 21 million Americans are living with diabetes, and 20 million of them have type 2, formerly known as adult onset diabetes. In the next 50 years, projections of the disease increase to 28 million Americans. The incidence of type 2 diabetes is particularly high within high-risk populations, including African-Americans, Latinos, Native Americans, and Asians. In Texas, 1.6 million have the disease; some 940,000 know that they have diabetes, whereas 680,000 are unaware that they have the disease.

Diabetes can cause health problems throughout the body, but those who have type 2 diabetes can do a lot to improve their own health by keeping a careful watch on their nutrition. People with diabetes can live long, healthy lives if they take good care of themselves, particularly by controlling blood glucose levels through good nutrition.
