Infographic - Diabetes Type 2

Diabetes Type 2 Info Graphic Series

Type 2 Diabetes is called the silent killer and has become very common in those over 50 and especially those overweight.  The blood sugar level is not controlled, causing it to rise and this leads to problems. Blindness and death being among them. A simple blood test can detect it.

This initial draft infographic is one of  a proposed series to educate.  The background orange is symbolic of bringing blood glucose level under control to between 4.5 and 7.0.

The text is to help explain that what is eaten is as important as the medication. Your average friend does not know any of this. It also indicates that Diabetics cannot eat at most restaurants, unless they have something like meat or fish and a green salad!

The text:
I control my diabetes with diet, exercise and medication.
 This means I cannot eat or must drastically limit most carbohydrates as well as sugar.
 Things like white breads, spaghetti, noodles, pastry, potatoes and most starchy foods.
 Things like carrots, cakes, green peas and pumpkin too. So please understand it isn't that I don’t want to go to that restaurant with you.  I just cannot eat what is on their menu.
