Ariz. tribe fighting war against diabetes
TUESDAY, JUNE 24, 2003

Through lifestyle changes, the Ak-Chin Indian Community is combating diabetes, a disease that affects about a third of tribal members.

Cassandra Allen runs the tribe's diabetes program. Using $240,000 in grants, she has started exercise classes, swimming lessons and has hired a dietitian in the last two years. Additional funds will come from the federal Special Diabetes Program, which is helping tribes nationwide.

Last year, the tribe only saw eight new cases of diabetes, about half the number in previous years.

This is off a web site:
Diabetes in adults may start slowly. In fact, millions of people don't even know they have it. They may just feel very tired at first, then later may have these symptoms:

Urinating more than usual, as the body tries to get rid of the extra sugar in the blood
Feeling unusually thirsty, because the body needs to replace the lost fluid
Nausea
Blurred vision
Feeling hungry while losing weight
Frequent infections
Skin sores that won't heal

It's important to remember that diabetes symptoms may not be the same for everyone:

The symptoms of type 2 diabetes may come on gradually.
Some people may have no symptoms at all.
Many people have type 2 diabetes and don't know it.

Untreated diabetes can cause serious health problems, such as blindness, heart and blood vessel damage, and permanent nerve damage. Seeing your doctor regularly for checkups and a discussion of your risk for diabetes is key to staying healthy.

SCARY!!
