LFCHD honors World Diabetes Day today

Today is World Diabetes Day, and our staff has been working to educate the community about the warning signs for Type 1 Diabetes.

Nancy Hiner, a registered dietitian and certified diabetes educator, recently attended a statewide diabetes symposium and learned about a dramatic increase in undiagnosed Type 1 Diabetes with DKA (diabetic ketoacidosis) in kids 5 and younger. This could be a fatal mistake, and Hiner and her colleagues have been getting the word out about the warning signs.

See below for a look at the flyers the health department has been sharing via social media, including a prompt for people to call us at 859-288-2310 to learn more about diabetes.
