Diabetes awareness

American Diabetes Awareness Month is November.

A nurse health educator will be available in the lobby of the Pender County Health Department on World Diabetes Day, Nov. 14, to answer any questions patients and families have about pre-diabetes, type 1 and type 2 diabetes and to provide educational information for patients to take home. Signs and symptoms of diabetes include urinating often, feeling very thirsty, feeling very hungry, extreme fatigue, blurred vision, cuts or bruises that are slow to heal, tingling or numbness in hands and feet and losing weight even when you are eating more.  If you are experiencing these symptoms, contact your healthcare provider.

For more information about Diabetes Month, call the Pender County Health Department at 910-259-1230.
