For those struggling with diabetes, you may already have a regimen in place to help with your diagnosis. However, if you are experiencing symptoms in relation to diabetes that raise concern, always seek advice and treatment from a doctor or specialist. The same applies to those who are not entirely certain if their symptoms are diabetes-related. It's a matter of recognizing and knowing the signs (possible symptoms below). To add to the importance of staying informed, there's also a program available in Butte that provides insight into dealing with diabetes. Conducted at St. James Healthcare in Butte, the Diabetes Self-Management Education Program allows participants to work with a certified diabetes educator and a registered dietitian to create a customized self-management plan that works for them! Interested participants are encouraged to engage in the full three-week session, which meets from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at St. James Healthcare in Butte (400 S Clark) on the following Thursdays: February 9th, 16th and 23rd. (More about managing diabetes and knowing the symptoms below)

Participants of February's Diabetes Self-Management Education Program will strive to focus on carb intake while managing the foods they enjoy. The sessions will also concentrate on managing blood sugar readings and understanding how your medications work and react in your system. The program will also provide insight into how to prevent complications related to diabetes. For more information about this month's Diabetes Self-Management Education Programs, contact coordinator Ida Reighhard, RN, CDE of St. James Healthcare, at (406) 723-2960. Registration for the three-week course is available here -> DIABETES COURSE. Other sessions are available throughout the year and visible on the site above.

The possible symptoms of type 1, type 2, and gestational diabetes include but are not limited to the following (below). If any of these symptoms sound familiar, seek the help of a medical professional.

LOOK: Things from the year you were born that don't exist anymore

The iconic (and at times silly) toys, technologies, and electronics have been usurped since their grand entrance, either by advances in technology or breakthroughs in common sense. See how many things on this list trigger childhood memories—and which ones were here and gone so fast you missed them entirely.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
