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

MBB : Joseph leads Syracuse to blowout victory over DePaul

admin no comments

first_img Comments Note to our readers: In an effort to cut costs during a non-print publication period, The Daily Orange Board of Directors voted after much deliberation to cut travel expenses to the DePaul game. The decision was based on the paper’s tight budget and made in order to ensure costs for later sports travel could be met. The Daily Orange continues its pledge of providing objective and original coverage of Syracuse athletics.In Syracuse’s last game, Kris Joseph was held scoreless for the first time since his freshman year. But on Sunday, he made sure that wouldn’t happen again, scoring early and often.The senior forward scored in a multitude of ways. When Syracuse broke the DePaul press — as it often did in the first half — Joseph knocked down a wide-open 3 to put the Orange up by seven midway through the first half. He finished a fast break off a defensive rebound by slamming home a pass from Brandon Triche.And he had success driving to the hoop, as well. Joseph’s 22 points and seven rebounds were indicative of the dominant performance by the Orange. Syracuse was on point from the field, shooting 19-of-29 (65.5 percent) in building a 19-point halftime lead. The No. 1 Orange (15-0, 2-0 Big East) cruised from there to an 87-68 victory over the Blue Demons (9-4, 0-1) on Sunday at Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Ill. The Orange fell behind in the opening minutes as DePaul jumped out to a 7-2 lead, but went on a 15-2 run to gain a cushion and never trailed again.SU snapped DePaul’s five-game win streak and blew out a Big East opponent for the second straight game.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text‘I think the first half we did a good job against their defense, their pressure,’ SU head coach Jim Boeheim said in his postgame press conference, obtained via email from an SU athletics official. ‘… Our defense was really good in the first half and that was the game. The second half was just trading baskets.’Five players were in double figures for SU, who shot 58.6 percent from the field for the game. Joseph led the way with 22 points, but C.J. Fair had a season-high 16 points, Dion Waiters added 13, Fab Melo scored 12 — along with six blocks — and Brandon Triche had 10.Syracuse got a major contribution from Joseph, who failed to score a point in SU’s 75-49 win over Seton Hall on Wednesday. He made it look much easier against the Blue Demons, who used a full-court pressure defense for most of the game to try and slow down SU. At times, it worked, evidenced by SU’s 12 first-half turnovers.But many times it backfired, leading to easy baskets for the Orange.Scoop Jardine, Waiters and Triche were forced into some tough passes as the Blue Demons defense tried trapping them in the backcourt. But most of the time, they got the ball out.Early in the game, Joseph received a pass as SU broke out of the press and drove to the hoop for a layup. He missed the attempt but made his own follow to give SU its first lead, 9-7. Later, Jardine threw a long pass upcourt out of the press, and James Southerland finished inside, putting SU up 29-18.‘We got a lot of layups,’ Boeheim said. ‘Whenever you get pressed, they’re going to get some steals. They’re gambling. You’re going to make a couple mistakes. … I thought overall, we handled it well. We made a couple bad turnovers but that happens.’Syracuse got plenty of points in transition as it built its lead, many of them also coming off defensive rebounds. SU has struggled at times this season to end possessions on the defensive boards, but a strong effort rebounding allowed the Orange to get out and run.Joseph got his points quietly, accumulating them across the first half as SU built a large lead. The Orange broke the press again about 10 minutes into the first half, getting Joseph a wide-open look on the left wing, and he hit a 3 to put the Orange up 22-15.The rest of the team joined him in a scorching-hot first half for SU shooting-wise. Syracuse led 45-26 at the break.In the second half it was much of the same. The Orange and Blue Demons traded baskets for much of the final 20 minutes, and the lead didn’t really fluctuate.DePaul forward Cleveland Melvin managed to get his points, finishing with 23 and eight rebounds, but the Blue Demons’ second-leading scorer, Brandon Young, failed to make a shot. He came in averaging 16.1 points per game, but shot 0-of-8 from the field.The Orange extended its lead to as large as 28 in the second half, easily defeating the team picked this preseason to finish last in the Big East.‘We haven’t played the hard teams that we have to play,’ Boeheim said. ‘We haven’t proven anything yet. We’ve beaten people that we probably should have.’[email protected]  Published on January 1, 2012 at 12:00 pm Contact Mark: [email protected] | @mark_cooperjrcenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
