Youth : Diabetes awareness

Your child could have diabetes and you don't even know it! A recent study released by The New England Journal of Medicine indicates a rise in diabetes type 1 and 2 that is afflicting the youth of America (ages 0-19). While the study was focused on the data provided from diagnosis done in 2002-2012, it is the first study done for pointing out a trend in the increase of this condition. The results are quite unsettling, to say the least. It is estimated that 11,245 youths are diagnosed with type 1 diabetes (0 to 19 years of age), and approximately 2,846 (aged 10-19) are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. Overall, the relative annual increase in the occurrence of type 1 diabetes was 1.8%, whereas type 2 diabetes was a 4.8% increase. . According to the CDC type 2 diabetes has become more and more prevalent in the youth today. Therefore, it is not only a good idea, but almost imperative that more health facilities do everything they can to spread the knowledge and awareness of diabetes. Luckily CPR Savers has the perfect product for such a mission, the Diabetes Mellitus Display.

Kidneys are one of our major functioning organs in our body. They are so important that we are provided with two for the possibility of losing one due to injure. Our kidneys processes all the food and drinks we put in our body, to keep the nutrients and filter out all the toxins in our body to keep us healthy. However sometimes, the kidneys become impaired, and are unable to cleanse our systems. When this happens, various diseases to the kidneys can arise. Among the most common are : Kidney stones. UTI. Kidney infections. These diseases are benign and should be treated right away to prevent further kidney damage. Among the most severe kidney problems are: Acute kidney injury (AKI) , Hepatitis C , Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) and Kidney failure .
