A AND BEAUTY SI ALL GOOD LUCK IN THE NEW YE FAYETTE SPEED WASH Larry, Nancy and, Shawn, Parlay It's estimated that more than two and a half million person in the United States have diabetes, and almost half of that number arc unaware that they have the ailment. Diabetes is a condition in which the body loses its ability to convert sugars and starches into needed energy, explains the Iowa State Department of Health.

Last rites were conducted this week for Ida Burns from the First Methodist church and for Clyde Ashby, from the Belles- Wright funeral home. The sugars and starches in the body accumulate, and the kidneys increase the quantity of urine in order to wash them away. A diabetic is likely to be increasingly hungry and thirsty, although he may begin to lose weight. New tests enable doctors to diagnose diabetes more accurately. Diabetes, or at least a tendency toward it, may be inherited. And although not all overweight persons become diabetic, more than 80 per cent of all adult diabetics were overweight before the disease developed. Until insulin was isolated in 1922, diabetes was almost always fatal. Now with proper medical care, the well-controlled diabetic can live a virtually normal life. Modern treatment includes a balance of diet, physical activity, and, where needed, medication. The medication is either insulin injections, oral drugs, or a combination of both. Today there is no known cure for diabetes. Before a cure can be found it will be necessary to find the cause of the disease that brings on the symptoms of diabetes. However progress to date has made it possible to recognize, treat and reduce the complications of diabetes. Neglect of the condition may lead to heart disease, failing eyesight, hardening of the arteries, kidney disorders, gangrene, cerebral hemorrhage, or diabetic coma. Your physican can' easily check to see if you have diabetes. Call him. Escapes Eugene Van Berkel, 12, of near Rock Valley was almost unhurt though bruised, when a tractor he was driving overturned and pinned him beneath it recently. He was getting his father's cattle home from the field when he attempted to turn the vehicle. It apparently hit a soft spot and rolled over. He was badly bruised but had no broken bones.
