Diabetes Among African-American Males

  1. 1.  A California podiatric surgeon, Dr. Bill Releford has been practicing for more than two decades. A firm supporter of diabetes awareness, Dr. Bill Releford founded the Black Barbershop Health Outreach Program in 2007 to provide diabetes screening at African-American- owned barbershops across the nation.
  2. 2.  An estimated 2.7 million African-American men 20 years old and older have a form of diabetes. This number reflects 11.4 percent of black men in the United States, of which one-third are unaware that they suffer from the illness. A deadly disease if not managed properly, diabetes also serves as a gateway for other severe ailments, such as blindness, kidney failure, and cardiovascular disease. Among the leading cause of diabetes in this demographic is obesity.
  3. 3.  To help prevent diabetes, a person should drink more water. Carrying a water bottle at all times encourages more consumption, which helps a person feel full and avoid consuming unnecessary calories from juice and sugary beverages. In addition, the director of the National Diabetes Education Program suggests sharing desserts and passing up starchy foods that can add to the risk of diabetes.
