November Is American Diabetes Month New York, NY

November Is American Diabetes Month

smiling elderly couple

The American Diabetes Association observes November as the American Diabetes Month. They intend to use the month to raise awareness about the risk factors associated with diabetes and encourage people to make healthy changes.

A few healthy changes offered by the American Diabetes Association

  • Take the stairs instead of the elevator.
  • Talk to people in your community about getting regular checkups by getting their blood pressure and cholesterol checked, and asking the doctor about their diabetes risk.
  • Eat a healthy diet and incorporate physical activity into your day.

Dr. Alan Benvenisty would like to use this month to remind you of the connection between diabetes and your vascular and kidney health. A high level of blood glucose or blood sugar is associated with diabetes. These conditions can damage your kidneys over time. It is the job of your kidneys to cleanse your blood, when they are damaged waste and fluids build up in your blood instead of leaving your body.

If you have diabetes, you should get regular screenings for kidney disease. If you have continual damage to your kidneys it could cause kidney failure. Did you know that diabetes is the most common cause of kidney failure in the United States? Kidney failure leads to the necessity for either a kidney transplant or dialysis.

If you have kidney conditions contact Dr. Alan I. Benvenisty today. He is an expert in treating kidney condition and he is committed to giving you the personalized treatment you want and need.

Dr. Benvenisty was excellent and helped us with my husband's extensive leg swelling related to diabetes. We had another specialist who didn't help us last year. We're planning to stay with Dr. Benvenisty now! He's detailed oriented, matter-of-fact and friendly. An excellent doctor I would strongly recommend.


Dr. Benvenisty treated my mother in the ER during this time of the covid outbreak. He was a part of a fantastic team of doctors that were brought in to find out what was ailing my mother. He is first and for most experienced in many areas as my mother was diagnosed with pancreatitis. Although he transferred the surgery to another member of his team, he gave me his mobile and kept me informed of her condition/diagnosis at a time where I was unable to be with her myself because of this pandemic. His heart, compassion, understanding and bedside manner are things that I will not ever forget. He is an excellent doctor and truly a great human being.
