New Year, New Start!
As one year ends and another begins, it is our tradition to take time to celebrate the accomplishments of the past and set goals for the future. While most New Year's resolutions focus on improving lifestyles, finances, and careers, goal-setting for people living with diabetes are often focused on maintaining good health. In preparation for 2019, the DMS team encourages everyone to help improve the quality of life for the courageous men, women, and children who struggle with daily healthcare needs. Let's make it our collective goal in the upcoming year to make good health a reality for everyone.

Few Americans Have Optimal 'Metabolic Health'

Only about one in eight American adults has what is known as good metabolic health, a new study finds. Good metabolic health means having ideal measures of five factors without taking medications: blood sugar, triglycerides, good cholesterol (high-density lipoprotein), blood pressure, and waist circumference. The study showed that the following characteristics: being female, younger, physically active, having more education and not smoking were linked to better metabolic health.
ADA Releases Comprehensive Type 2 Diabetes Guidelines for Youth

The incidence of type 2 diabetes (T2D) in people under the age of 20 is increasing in the United States. One national  study  indicates a 4.8 percent increase of newly diagnosed cases of T2D in the age group from 2002 to 2012. Youth and adolescents living with T2D face many of the same challenges as adults diagnosed with the disease, yet are at risk of developing diabetes-related complications at an earlier age, which can greatly impact their quality of life and life expectancy.
Cheers To Responsible Holiday Drinking
Toasting in the season with your favorite adult beverage is the traditional thing to do. However, for people living with diabetes, consuming too much alcohol can negatively impact blood sugar levels. In an effort to ensure that you enjoy your time with friends and family, below are a few tips for drinking during holiday festivities.


Individuals with diabetes should limit their consumption to no more than two drinks for men and just one for women. These drinks can be one shot-size mixed drink, 12-ounces of beer - either regular or low calorie - and one glass of wine. Alcohol may raise blood glucose at the beginning if it is a fruity or wine beverage, but when fully metabolized it can eventually drop the blood glucose to drastically low levels.

If you are going to drink, be sure to let someone know that you have diabetes, so if you show any symptoms of hypoglycemia, they are aware that you are not inebriated, but experiencing the symptom of the chronic illness. Remember, low blood sugar can often mimic the looks of being inebriated. Finally, please consider wearing identification or ID jewelry.

We hope you have a safe and wonderful holiday season.
