Diabetes - Midmichigan Health

The Diabetes programs within MidMichigan Health help people with diabetes take control of their illness so they can live full and active lives here in the middle of Michigan. Diabetes is a disease that prevents the body from correctly utilizing glucose the fuel that is made from the carbohydrates we eat. There are several types of diabetes: Type 1 diabetes- In Type 1 diabetes, the body's immune system destroys insulin-producing cells in the pancreas. This type of diabetes was previously known as juvenile onset diabetes. Type 2 diabetes- In type 2 diabetes, either the body does not produce enough insulin, or the body cannot use the insulin properly. This is the most common type of diabetes. Gestational diabetes- This type of diabetes effects pregnant women who have never had diabetes before, but who have high blood sugar levels during pregnancy. It is a temporary condition that affects one in 20 pregnant women. Prediabetes- This condition occurs in people that have blood sugar levels that are higher than normal, although not yet high enough to be diagnosed as diabetic. You may want to check with your insurance plan to see which programs and services are covered. The diabetes education programs at MidMichigan Medical Centersin Clare,Gladwin, Midland, and Mt. Pleasant havebeenrecognized by the American Association of Diabetes Educators for meeting national quality standards.These programs have also earned state certification by the Michigan Department of Community Health .

Community-based Screening For Diabetes In Michigan.

Community-based Screening For Diabetes In Michigan.

Community-based screening for diabetes in Michigan. Department of Internal Medicine, University of Michigan Health System, Ann Arbor, Michigan 48109-0354, USA. To describe and evaluate a community-based diabetes screening program supported by the Michigan Department of Community Health. Between 1 June 1999 and 31 December 1999, community screening for diabetes was conducted by voluntary organizations using a standard protocol, American Diabetes Association (ADA) questionnaires, and ADA capillary plasma glucose criteria. A total of 3506 individuals were screened, 14% of whom did not meet criteria for screening. Of the 3031 individuals appropriately screened, 57% were classified as being at high risk based on the ADA questionnaire and 5% had positive screening tests based on ADA capillary plasma glucose criteria. Despite systematic follow-up, the screening program's yield of individuals with undiagnosed diabetes was <1%. Community screening for diabetes conducted according to ADA recommendations was extremely inefficient at identifying individuals with undiagnosed diabetes. The ADA diabetes screening questionnaire resulted in many false positive tests, and the ADA criteria for positive plasma glucose tests likely missed a substantial portion of individuals with undiagnosed diabetes. Relying on biochemical tests such as random plasma glucose, changing the criteria for a positive plasma glucose test, targeting racial and ethnic minority groups, and targeting medically underserved individuals might improve the yield of community-based diabetes screening.

Diabetes | National Kidney Foundation Of Michigan

Diabetes mellitus is a disease in which the body is either no longer making a hormone called insulin or the insulin that is made is not working as it should. Either way, high amounts of glucose (a form of sugar) build in the bloodstream and cause problems from damage to the eyes, kidneys, blood vessels, and nerves. For this reason, diabetes is the primary cause of new cases of adult blindness, kidney failure, and non-traumatic lower-limb amputation. Over a million Michigan adults have diabetes. Diabetes is the leading cause of kidney failure. One in 11 U.S. adults has been diagnosed with diabetes (closer to one in 10 in Michigan). At the current rate of growth, one in four U.S. adults will be diagnosed with diabetes by 2050. As much as 80 percent of the growth in diabetes can be attributed to the rise in obesity. Obesity, in turn, is influenced by factors such as increased consumption of calories and decreased opportunities for physical activity. Some races and ethnicities are disproportionately affected by diabetes. African Americans, Hispanics, American Indians, Asian and Pacific Islanders, and Arab Americans all have higher prevalence of type 2 diabetes compared to White, non-Hispanics. The latest statistics, developed by the Michigan Department of Community Healths Diabetes Prevention and Control Program (DPCP), show the following: Diabetes affects 29.1million Americans (9.3% of the population) and an estimated 1.85 million (10.4% of the population*) Michigan citizens. Prediabetes, a condition in which individuals have blood glucose levels higher than normal but not high enough to be classified as diabetes, affects 86million Americans, including 2.6 million (8.2% of the population*) citizens in Michigan. Diabetes costs the United States $174 billion annually an Continue reading >>

The Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) is a lifestyle change program that can help prevent or delay type 2 diabetes. For participants who achieve modest weight loss (5-7% of body weight, about 10-14 pounds for a 200 pound person) and 150 minutes of physical activity a week, the program can help prevent or delay type 2 diabetes by 58% for people with prediabetes (71% for people over 60 years old). As part of a group, participants work with trained lifestyle coaches and other participants to learn skills to make lasting lifestyle changes. Participants learn to eat healthy, increase physical activity, manage stress, stay motivated, and solve problems that can get in the way of healthy habits. There are nearly 70 Diabetes Prevention Programs in Michigan! For the first six months, participants meet weekly for a total of 16 sessions. During the second 6 months, participants will meet monthly. The Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) is open to individuals who meet the following requirements: Are overweight (body mass index equal to or greater than 24; equal to or greater than 22 if Asian) and Have no previous diagnosis of type 1 or type 2 diabetes and Have a blood test result in the prediabetes range within the past year Two-hour plasma glucose (after a 75 gm glucose load): 140199 mg/dL OR Be previously diagnosed with gestational diabetes OR Screen positive for prediabetes based on the CDC Prediabetes Screening Test (pdf).
