The Diabetes Treatment Center at Raleigh Community Hospital is hosting a free lecture series in honor of Diabetes Awareness Month. Undoubtedly most people have heard of diabetes but surprisingly are not aware of the dietary and lifestyle practices placing us at risk. As a result, diagnosis rates remain low, late diagnosis is frequent, the level of complications is high and patients have to travel long distances to access care. The three main categories are Type 1, Type 2, and Gestational Diabetes, and each of these is described in further depth below.
