What is Diabetes?

Type 1 Diabetes is usually diagnosed in children and young adults, and was previously known as juvenile diabetes. In type 1 diabetes, the body does not produce insulin.  Insulin is the hormone that is needed to convert sugar, starches, and other foods into energy needed for daily life.  Only 5% of people with diabetes have this type.

Type 2 Diabetes is the most common form of diabetes.  In this type, either the body does not produce enough insulin or the cells ignore the insulin.  Millions of Americans have been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, and many more have no idea they are at high risk of developing it. 

Gestational Diabetes is developed during pregnancy, usually around the 24th week. A diagnosis of gestational diabetes doesn't mean that you had diabetes before you conceived, or that you will have diabetes after giving birth.

This information was provided by The American Diabetes Association.  For more information and tips for people with diabetes, please visit: http://www.diabetes.org

Thanks-for-Giving…

Contributed by Marian Brown on 11/21/12 

As of today (Wednesday, November 21), the day before Thanksgiving, 215 members of our Ithaca College community have gathered together to help our campus United Way campaign achieve 79% of our goal; we currently stand at $51,520. It is very impressive that 21% of our donors are giving to the United Way for the first time, and we have even received $1,815 in contributions from College retirees still living in the area! This is a great show of College-wide support, but all of the contributions received to date have come from less than 13% of our campus community. Don’t be the “odd man out” – please do your part and help Ithaca College meet our campus fundraising goal before the end of November.
