Hospital presents free seminar about diabetes

The American Diabetes Association estimates that 25.8 million children and adults in the United States — 8.3% of the population — have diabetes. Millions of Americans have been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, and many more are unaware they are at high risk.
However, there is good news for those who have diabetes or may be at risk, according to Beaufort Memorial Hospital internal medicine specialist M. Randy Dalbow, MD.
“We have made great strides in understanding diabetes over the past 20 years,” said Dr. Dalbow, who treats patients at Beaufort Memorial Lady’s Island Internal Medicine. “Physicians now have many resources that can save our patients from the complications that plagued the generations before us.”
Dr. Dalbow will present a free seminar “Everything You Wanted to Know About Diabetes (and Don’t be Afraid to Ask),” on Thursday, Jan. 31 from 8 to 9:30 a.m. at The Quality Inn at Town Center in Beaufort.  A light, continental breakfast will be served. Seating is limited and registration is required.
The hospital will also be offering free glucose screenings prior to the seminar from 7 to 8 a.m.
The seminar will focus primarily on type 2 diabetes, the most common form of the disease. Dr. Dalbow will explore the symptoms, causes and treatments.
To register for “Everything You Wanted to Know About Diabetes” call the Beaufort Memorial Hospital registration line at (843) 522-5585, or toll-free at (888) 522-5585, by Friday, Jan. 25. The Quality Inn at Town Center is located at 2001 Boundary Street in Beaufort. For information about Beaufort Memorial LifeFit Wellness Services and Dr. M. Randy Dalbow, visit www.bmhsc.org.
