Did you know that 1 in 11 people suffer from diabetes? Diabetes is a condition where the body has a hard time regulating its blood sugar levels due to an inadequate supply of insulin or an unresponsiveness to it. Type 1 diabetes is caused by an autoimmune reaction that destroys the insulin-producing beta cells in the pancreas. Type 2 diabetes is caused by excessive weight and lack of physical activity that result in insulin resistance. Both types of diabetes are serious and require treatment and lifestyle modifications to prevent complications such as heart disease, stroke, nerve damage, and vision loss. With proper diet, exercise, medication, and regular health checkups, diabetes can be managed and its complications can be prevented. If you or someone you know is at risk of diabetes, don’t wait and get tested.


Vaping has become increasingly popular over the years, and is now used by millions of people globally. However, it’s important to note that while there are some potential benefits of vaping, it is not without some risks. In particular, newly published research indicates a potential link between vaping and an increased risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. Specifically, data collected from 3 million people found that vaping at least once a week led to a 28% increased risk of developing Type 2 diabetes, compared to non-vapers. The researchers suspect that this increase in risk may be attributed to vaping potentially causing inflammation and inflammation-promoting cells in the body, which are associated with Type 2 diabetes. Therefore, it is important for those who use e-cigarettes to be aware of this potential risk, and consult their healthcare provider if they have any questions or concerns.
