Dear Editor: November is American Diabetes Month and the Lincoln County Health Department would like for people to think about a few diabetes facts. Sixty percent of adults with diabetes have high blood pressure; two out of three people with diabetes die from heart disease and stroke, and 68 percent of people with diabetes do not consider cardiovascular disease to be a serious complication of diabetes. When managing diabetes, it is important to remember the connection that it has with heart disease and stroke.

Five weeks ago, Ashlee Taylor’s world was turned upside down. She’d been sick for a couple of days, but had been drinking more and more for a month before. On Oct. 5, the George Rogers Clark High School freshman went to the emergency room at 4 a.m. After her bloodwork was completed, they found the problem. Ashlee was a Type 1 diabetic. With that diagnosis, the lives of Ashlee and her family changed. With Type 1 diabetes, a person’s pancreas doesn’t make insulin, which helps digest sugar into their system.
