The National Kidney Foundation of Michigan (NKFM) is recognizing National Women’s Health Week, May 12-May 18, 2013. Please help the NKFM to educate women about the importance of living a healthy lifestyle to manage and prevent type 2 diabetes, kidney failure, and other related health complications. I have attached a press release in this email with more information about women’s health and health management.
Women with diabetes have a shorter life expectancy than women without diabetes, and women are at greater risk of blindness from diabetes than men. Additionally, the risk of heart disease is more serious for women with diabetes than men because women with diabetes have lower survival rates and poorer quality of life than men with diabetes. The good news is that diabetes and many diabetes-related complications can be prevented or delayed by adopting a healthy lifestyle.
Please consider using this information in your publication or on your publication’s website. Let me know if you have questions.
