Premier Foot Clinic via Crowdrise

BENEFITING: Diabetes Foundation of Mississippi
EVENT DATE: Oct 04, 2015
Diabetes is a disease where the body is unable to produce, use, and store insulin. Insulin helps get glucose, a simple sugar from foods that we eat, into the cells of the body to generate energy. Without insulin, glucose stays in the bloodstream--causing the blood glucose or "sugar" to rise too high. There is no cure for diabetes, but it can be managed by healthy eating, physical activity, and medication. Too much glucose, from diabetes, can cause nerve damage and poor blood flow, which can lead to serious foot problems. Premier Foot Clinic is committed to helping our patients tame Diabetes. Donations we raise will fund education, advocacy, research, and medical assistance programs to help Mississippians learn how to prevent and treat diabetes and help us all live healthier lives! You can make donations on this site, our Go Fund Me account, or in our office. You are also welcome to walk with us!!!
