Drive 4 Diabetes Awareness

June 24th, Florida State Oval Dirt Series

 June 10th at Florida Dirt Motor Speedway has been rained out and rescheduled for June 24th.
#DFDA will be having an exciting and busy weekend as Lacy will be racing in back to back races one on Dirt then asphalt. Heather will be making her racing debut at Ambassador Speedway for the oval asphalt powder puff Ladies race. It's going to be hot and fast. Lacy finished clean and learned a lot from her previous race and we found some speed but Lacy has plenty more to unleash this next race. I asked Lacy if she had anymore speed in her kart and she confirmed she does so we will go back to the track and see what she has for the big one the  #FDCS State Florida Dirt Championship Series Race.

What you need to know

What is Type 1 Diabetes

  Type 1 diabetes (T1D, insulin-dependent or juvenile) can occur at any age, but most commonly is diagnosed from infancy to the late 30s. With T1D a person’s pancreas produces little or no insulin. Although the causes are not entirely known, scientists believe the body’s own defense system (the immune system) attacks and destroys the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas. People with T1D must inject insulin several times every day or continually infuse insulin through a pump.

Diabetic Ketoacidossis

  While its causes are not yet entirely understood, scientists believe that both genetic factors and environmental triggers are involved. Its onset has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle.

There is nothing you can do to prevent T1D, and – at present- nothing you can do to get rid of it.   

  • Extreme Thirst
  • Frequent Urination
  • Sudden Vision Changes
  • Drowsiness, Lethargy
  • Fruity, Sweet Odor on Breath
  • Stupor/ Unconsciousness.
  • Heavy Labored Breathing
  • Increased Appetite

Knowing the warning signs for Type 1 diabetes could save a life.

 Education about the symptoms of Type 1 Diabetes is critical because Type 1 can easily be mistaken for more common illnesses, such as the flu, and misdiagnosis can have tragic consequences. As many as 3 million Americans may have Type 1 diabetes. Each year, more than 15,000 children and 15,000 adults – approximately 80 people per day – are diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in the U.S. Knowing the symptoms of Type 1 Diabetes can save a life. Please share what you’ve learned with everyone.
