SouthCoast Health: How to Manage or Prevent Diabetes in the ‘Diabetes Belt’

Tuesday, November 30th, 2021
SouthCoast Health doctors Savannah

SouthCoast Health’s Dr. Rebecca Sellers (Family Medicine)

How manage & prevent diabetes 

Chatham, Effingham, Bryan, Glynn & Liberty counties are all part of what medical experts call the Diabetes Belt, a specific region in the southern U.S. that has comparatively higher rates of diabetes than other areas.

Living in the Diabetes Belt doesn’t automatically mean you’ll be diagnosed with the condition. While there are certain risk factors beyond your control, there are still many that you can change. And, even if you’ve already been diagnosed, effectively managing your diabetes can help you reduce your risk of complications, according to SouthCoast Health.

Small lifestyle changes can have big results when it comes to reducing your diabetes risk.

“You don’t have to join an official program or wait to make changes,” says Dr. Rebecca Sellers, primary care physician at SouthCoast Health.

Sellers lists few things here that you can do now to control your diabetes risk.

Learn more here.

Kid’s Dentistree’s Tips for Keeping a Healthy Smile During the Holidays

It’s that time of year again! The holidays come chock-full of festive social gatherings, sweet treats and gift-giving. With all the commotion that often surrounds the season, it’s easy to see how taking care of your teeth could fall to the bottom of the priority list. Kid’s Dentistree in Richmond Hill is offering a few tips on how you can keep your smile healthy during the holidays.

Stick to Routine

Even though there is a lot going on over the holidays, MouthHealthy.org, an ADA website, suggests maintaining a regular routine of brushing two times a day. If you are due for a cleaning or dental work, be sure to schedule and keep your appointment.

Be Selective

With so many tempting treats, it’s probably unrealistic to suggest avoiding sweets altogether. However, MouthHealthy.org tells us that eating sugary foods with or shortly after meals increases saliva production, which helps to cancel out acids and rinse away food particles. Also be sure to drink a lot of water, especially when eating dried fruits like cranberries, which tend to stick to your teeth. Finally, try to limit starchy foods, which can break down into sugars.

Protect Your Teeth

Try to avoid using your teeth as a substitute for proper tools. For example, use a nutcracker to crack the hard shells of nuts before eating, a bottle opener to remove bottle caps and scissors to remove stubborn ribbons. If you do damage a tooth, be sure to make an appointment as soon as possible to keep the problem from getting worse.

Happy Holidays!

For whatever you are celebrating this season, the Kid’s Dentistree team wishes you and your family a safe, joyful and healthy holiday.

Visit Kid’s Dentistree’s web site or call (912) 756-5437 to schedule your child’s visit today.

The Kid’s Dentistree office is located in the “Clock Tower” building, right next to The Suites at Station Exchange on Ford Avenue in Richmond Hill.

Manage Your Diabetes with SouthCoast Health Diabetic Self-Management Training Sessions

Thursday, November 11th, 2021

diabetes doctors savannah chatham county southcoast health

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently identified the southern United States as a “Diabetes Belt,” meaning that those who live in our area are more likely to have type 2 diabetes than anyone else in the United States.

“This is a concerning discovery,” Internist and Primary Care Physician Dr. Douglas Perry said. “Those who live with diabetes often have difficult daily routines to manage, which can quickly become overwhelming. They have to be extremely vigilant in watching what they eat, how active they are, what medicines they’re taking, and how they’re taking them.”

SouthCoast Health offers Diabetic Self-Management Training Sessions, designed to teach the skills necessary for managing diabetes, such as creating meal plans and how to check blood pressure.
