Diabetes Education Day at Mall

Posted: Updated:

UPMC Health Plan set up in the Millcreek Mall on Saturday, to educate people during National Diabetes Month.

They're teaming up with UPMC Hamot to bring information out to the community.

People could stop by to learn about symptoms, treatment options, and even how to cook for diabetics. They could also sign up for a diabetes risk assessment.

The American Diabetes Association says one in four people with diabetes don't know they have it.

"So many people have diabetes it is an epidemic, and the problem with diabetes is that it can affect virtually every body system and the symptoms are not obvious and blatant," said UPMC Hamot Diabetes Educator Stephenie Dalton. "Many times people have uncontrolled diabetes, high blood sugars, and they don't even know."
