RWMC Diabetes Center celebrates 10 years

Posted: Updated:

More than 25 million Americans are living with diabetes... and for the past decade, staff at Regional West's Diabetes Care Center has been helping people with it.

Yesterday evening, the center hosted the public to view its new location.

The department showcased their new office, and provided an opportunity for those affected by diabetes to meet with the diabetes' care team.

Each year, close to two million Americans are diagnosed with diabetes. The department's newest endocrinologist Dr. Jaroslaw Aniszewski says its an ongoing battle to prevent the onset of diabetes.

"It's very difficult," says Aniszewski, "There is no good answer. Lots of people are working on it. Of course a sensible diet, exercise and some weight loss work miracles. But that's easier said than done."

The highest risked aged group for diabetes? Seniors... more than 1 in 4 Americans aged 65 and older has some type of diabetes.
