Diabetes Increasing.

admin no comments

first_imgAs Georgians become heavier and more sedentary, diabetes and related ailments are soaring. “The greatest morbidity and mortality from the disease are seen in the oldest age groups,” said Connie Crawley, a University of Georgia extension nutrition specialist. “But diabetes is developing at much younger ages, so disability and death may become more common in younger populations soon.”Grim Stats A recent report by the American Diabetes Association and the Georgia Department of Human Resources gave grave statistics about the seriousness of diabetes in the state: About 217,000 Georgians have been diagnosed with diabetes. Another 108,000 are undiagnosed. Diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death in the state. For every reported death where diabetes is the primary cause, there are at least two deaths for which diabetes is a contributing cause. Death rates from diabetes have been rising about 1 percent each year for the past two decades. Diabetes is two times more common in the African-American population than in the non-Hispanic white population. Death rates from diabetes are two times higher for black men and three times higher for black women than for their white counterparts.Take Care “Unfortunately, people with diabetes don’t seem to be getting the care they need,” Crawley said. A survey of Georgians with diabetes found that only 6 percent reported meeting the minimal standards for routine medical care. “Only 25 percent of adults had heard of the hemoglobin A1c test, which is the best laboratory test to determine how well diabetes is under control,” she said. The lack of care lands many Georgia diabetes sufferers in the hospital. In 1997, diabetes was the primary cause of more than 12,600 hospitalizations, totaling 63,000 days in the hospital (equal to 173 years) and costing more than $99 million. “These figures don’t even include hospitalizations from other health problems like kidney disease, high blood pressure, amputations and cardiovascular disease which are more likely to occur in those who have diabetes,” Crawley said.Risk Groups Statistics show that the highest incidence of diabetes tends to be in the central and southwestern part of the state. “I believe part of the reason … may be demographics,” Crawley said. “The population is older and there are more people from the highest-risk ethnic groups, namely African-Americans and now Hispanics.” The report speculates that the increase in diabetes may be directly related to the increase in obesity and inactivity in Georgians. “We do know that those who exercise regularly and keep their weight down have less risk even if they have a family history of the disease,” Crawley said. “Obviously, in Georgia, diabetes is a serious, common and costly disease,” Crawley said. “New research has shown that with better control, death and disability from diabetes can be reduced. “But it will require directing more money and effort into weight-control and physical-activity efforts for all age groups who don’t have diabetes,” she said, “and intense diabetes education and care for those who have the disease or who may be at risk for developing it.”last_img read more

The state of industry in the Southern Tier

first_imgThe report contained some good news, some bad, as the department predicted growth across the board in the future, but some significant industries are still on the decline. (WBNG) — On Wednesday, the New York State Department of Labor released a report outlining the economic future of the Southern Tier. Every year the department issues a report naming 12 significant industries in our area. In 2019, those industries were largely based in manufacturing, health care and education. The Department of Labor predicts a 6.8% growth in jobs in our area from 2016 to 2026– with the largest growth expected to come in the ambulance services and warehouse and storage industries.center_img Overall, jobs decreased by 1% in the Southern Tier from 2013-2018. “We’re likely to still have some pains moving forward in industry categories that are cheaper done overseas or technology is taking over, some components of it,” said Christian Harris, a regional labor analyst for the state.last_img read more

Depending on volunteers we can start another team. We’re always looking for volunteer coaches. We need someone that is able to commit one to two days a week to help implement the program. You don’t have to be a runner or have to be in great shape, you don’t have to be a teacher or have any training. Our coaches and volunteers get as much out of it as our girls do,” Goike said.There are currently 16 schools that participate in the program throughout Northeast Michigan. Each school maxes out with 20 girls.Goike hopes to get at least 200 girls to participate this year. Girls on the Run Sunrise Side side starts on march 6th.The program will end their 10 week course with the ‘Color Me Awesome’ 5k on Saturday, May 20th.AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis Tags: girls on the run, Girls on the Run Sunrise Side, northeast michiganContinue ReadingPrevious Relay for Life of Alpena County has a New Name: ‘Relay for Life of Northeast Michigan’Next 8th Graders get a Glimpse of Their Future Thanks to the CTE Program During February’s Career and Technical Education Monthlast_img read more
