How Important is Blood Sugar Control in Type 2 Diabetes
Scientists at Tufts University School of Medicine claim that the primary goal of treatment in type 2 diabetes is no longer blood glucose control. They published this work in the February 2014 issue of the journal, American Family Physician. Doctors have been imprinted with the concept that control diabetes and you'll control its complications; while this remains correct, it turns out that there are other factors that are even more important in preventing heart attacks, strokes, renal failure, peripheral neuropath and retinopathy that include smoking, uncontrolled hypertention, poor management of high cholesterol, and lack of the use of metformin (glucophage). This doesn't mean forget about the importance of managing blood sugar levels, it just reinforces the importance of quitting smoking, managing hypertension and cholesterol, and using metformin when it is possible.

HOME REMEDY FOR ANEMIA, DIABETES & CHOLESTEROLS II मधुमेह, रक्तचाप और अनीमिया का घरेलू उपचार II
MUST WATCH VIDEO - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N96rUJCTils RELEASING 25-12-16 "COVER VERSION-AAJ JAANE KI ZIDD NA KARO - PROMO - ft - JYOTIKA SHARMA" -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- HOME REMEDY FOR ANEMIA, DIABETES & CHOLESTEROLS II मधुमेह, रक्तचाप और अनीमिया का घरेलू उपचार II Anemia is usually defined as a decrease in number of red blood cells (RBCs) or the amount of hemoglobin in the blood. It can also be defined as a lowered ability of the blood to carry oxygen.When anemia comes on slowly the symptoms are often vague and may include: feeling tired, weakness, shortness of breath or a poor ability to exercise. Anemia that comes on quickly often has greater symptoms which may include: confusion, feeling like one is going to pass out, and an increased desire to drink fluids. There needs to be significant anemia before a person becomes noticeably pale. There may be additional symptoms depending on the underlying cause. Cholesterol is both our friend and foe - at normal levels, it is an essential substance for the body's normal functioning, but if levels in the blood get too high, it becomes a silent danger that puts us at risk of a heart attack. Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. Patients with high blood sugar will typically experience polyuria (frequent urination), they will become increasingly thirsty (polydipsia) and hungry (polyphagia).

Diabetes Signs and Symptoms: Know If You're at Risk
November is here, which means that Diabetes Awareness month is here as well. At http://urgentcarewesthartford.com, we strongly encourage you to educate yourselves on the signs and symptoms of diabetes. Diabetes is a growing epidemic, especially here in the U.S. It threatens the lives of more and more people each year. In the U.S alone, over 25 million people are living with diabetes according to the CDC, and it is estimated that of those 25 million, approximately half of them are completely unaware of their condition. Sadly, on average, a person with the disease, if not managed well, will die 10 to 15 years sooner than a person without diabetes. The advancement of diabetes can be avoided if found and treated in the early stages. A large amount of the treatment for diabetes simply involves minor changes in daily routines and healthy life habits. Changes in day-to-day routines such as eating well, exercising, not smoking, and limited alcohol consumption, can all help to ease the effects of diabetes. Customarily, in addition to a healthier lifestyle, an oral medication in necessary in order to control the body’s insulin levels. If you are exhibiting any of the symptoms listed below, we advise that you consult with one of our doctors or see your primary care doctor for a diabetes screening. Early detection and proper treatment can prevent the symptoms from manifesting into more aggressive, sometimes life threatening, medical complications Prevalent Signs and Symptoms of Diabetes: Weight loss (despite a proper diet), Incessant thirst, Blurry vision, Frequent urination, Nerve pain or numbness in hands and or feet. If not managed early on, complications often form, and may include: severe kidney problems potentially requiring dialysis, premature heart attacks or strokes, amputation caused by the infections of minor cuts, or serious nerve damage that can also lead to the amputation of the affected limb. Once again, we are currently in the midst if you have reason to suspect that you might have diabetes, that you come see us at Doctors express or go see your primary doctor where a proper screening, usually, an A1C test can be performed.

Practicode Example —  Coding a Diabetes Case
UPDATE: CCO no longer offers Practicode. Please visit the AAPC for access http://cco.pe/practicode http://www.cco.us/medical-coding-practicum-course-practicode-yt Alicia: OK. So, Laureen and I we're talking, we talked about Practicode and we kept mentionin it but you haven't really seen an example of what a case looks like in Practicode, and so what we thought maybe we try to do at the webinars is right there at the end, pull a Practicode case and code it; and so, we did it in ICD-9 and we did it in ICD-10 so that yo can kind of get a feel for how to do this. If you go back up to the top it is an actual case, OK. Laureen: So you're not going in to Practicode to do this, you're doing it...? Alicia: Yeah, because we have to have had Practicode, we could do that next time. Laureen: Yeah I think so. Alicia: Yeah, because this time we've had to have Practicode open, but it's really easy to navigate, so we'll practice this time with what they look like, and the next time we'll actually go into Practicode. I'll show you how to go in and pick that case out. So, these are actual cases, and just real quickly scanning it, you can pick what you want and this was like a doctor's office visit, so family practice. The pertinent information here is the chief complaint, so this patient is having sharp abdominal pains and fainting. Then you get into the HPI. Now this was set up a little differently, I separated it because the other thing that should be practiced as a coder is being able to find the information in the case, and this is what Practicode gives you. This is real world experience, not experience learning how to take a test; this is how you can read a report and pull out the information you need. What does our patient have? They talked about a left lower quadrant and right lower quadrant pain, and then these are all the questions that the doctor asked the patient about the quality of the paid, the severity, what are the modifying factors. So nothing gives this person relief. And then you scroll down, you see associative symptoms: none. Then, this patient has an addiction to alcohol for 10 years and then it escalated over a year. I highlighted that because that's pertinent, although you'll find that the end they didn't add that to the diagnosis.

Is it common for a pregnant woman to be induced if she has gestational diabetes?
One of the things a healthcare provider in the field of obstetrics will always keep in mind is that if a woman has gestational diabetes, she might be cooking a large baby. If a woman has uncontrolled diabetes and has continual high blood sugars, then that's what can contribute to having a baby that is larger than normal. There are many risks to having uncontrolled blood sugars. It can cause stillbirth. It can cause complications with delivery if you have an abnormally large baby. All of these things need to be taken into consideration when the doctor determines what form of delivery is going to be most appropriate and what time the baby should be born. You asked a specific question about whether or not women who have gestational diabetes are induced or not. And this is so circumstantial. It can be so different for women based on many different factors. How well-controlled have her blood sugars been? How is she controlling them? Is it just with diet, or is she using oral medications, or does she have to use insulin? How big is her baby when she's 36-37 weeks along? So I recommend talking with your doctor about their plans and intentions for your situation. And based on their knowledge, they'll be able to give you the best recommendations and advice. One of the things that your doctor will take into consideration is that babies do best if born after 39 weeks. However, if you have a very very large baby at 37 or 38, that might be a reason to induce you, because it does decrease your chance of C-section. With that said, your chances of C-section are also slightly higher when you're induced if your body is not ready for it. So there's, again, many different things to weigh out. And the answer that's right for one woman may not be the right answer for another. If you have any other questions for me in the future, feel free to ask them on our Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/IntermountainMoms, and recommend us to your friends and family too.

Eat for real change | Dr Joanna McMillan | TEDxMacquarieUniversity
This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Most of us know we should eat better, but we don’t do it. We are increasingly confused over nutrition with so many conflicting views, and we give scarce thought as to how we eat or our relationship with food. We can only bring about real change when we end this confusion and bring the joy back to food. Adopted by the nation as an honorary Aussie, Dr Joanna McMillan’s ever-growing following is the result of her high profile within the media, health and fitness industries, and through her roles as Vice President of the Australian Lifestyle Medicine Association (ALMA), Ambassador for Diabetes Australia, and Ambassador for Australian Pineapples (to name a few). As a teenager Dr Joanna discovered that the way she ate and how much she exercised significantly impacted on her energy levels, mood, self-esteem, appearance and, consequently, her outlook on life. She initially studied psychology but her love of exercise resulted in a 15-year career as a fitness instructor. Having completed a Bachelor Degree in Science with First Class Honours in Nutrition and Dietetics, Dr Joanna moved to Australia and won a scholarship to complete her PhD with The University of Sydney in 1999. Today, Dr Joanna is the founder of Get Lean, a regular on the Nine Network and the official nutritionist for TODAY. She is also the author of several books, has a weekly column in Sunday Life and a blogger for Woolworths Baby & Toddler Club. Dr Joanna is a busy working mother, a tautology that provides her with an unwavering drive to teach people how to live a healthy and nutrition-filled life – yet one that doesn’t require obsessive or unrealistic attention in order to achieve it. The philosophy of this down-to-earth Scot is simple. She believes that having a good healthy relationship with food is just as important as eating nutritious foods, and she regards food as more than the nutrients it contains; rather, it is part of our social connection, our culture and a great source of pleasure in life. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

Getting serious about diabesity | Thomas Schlenker | TEDxSanAntonio
This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. A large portion of the population of the United States suffers from diabetes. Many more are at risk. Diabetes leads to very serious complications and often to slow, painful death. This is frequently the case in San Antonio, where 18% of adults are diabetic. For too many people, traditional medical approaches have not and are not working. Seriously addressing this problem means working on at least three different levels: 1) fully deploy the new diagnostic technology of hemoglobin A1C, 2) take a community organizing approach to diabetes prevention, and 3) address head-on the excess sugar in the American diet. Dr. Thomas Schlenker, M.D. is director of the San Antonio Metropolitan Health District and health authority for Bexar County, responsible for its 1.7 million inhabitants. He grew up in Wisconsin, studied political science at Antioch College, medicine at Northwestern, and public health at Harvard. Dr. Schlenker, a board certified pediatrician trained at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, had taken care of sick children and run health departments in Milwaukee, Madison, Salt Lake City, Nicaragua, and Chiapas, Mexico before coming to San Antonio in 2011. He has been a Fulbright Senior Fellow at the National Institute of Public Health in Cuernavaca, Mexico and has served as adjunct faculty at the Medical College of Wisconsin and the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio. The current foci of his work are teen pregnancy, syphilis, health care financing, and obesity and diabetes, all major concerns of the San Antonio community. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

Diabetic Foot Care - Toronto, ON - Podiatrist, Foot Doctor, Foot Specialist - Chiropodist Marz Hardy
Diabetic Foot Care - Toronto, ON - Podiatrist, Foot Doctor and Foot Specialist - Chiropodist Marz Hardy http://www.academyclinics.com Chiropodist Marz Hardy of Academy Foot and Orthotic Clinics discusses why diabetics must come in for a comprehensive foot exam to avoid the complications of diabetes. Our foot clinic has recently invested in the NC-STAT which is a computerized nerve testing system for the early detection of diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN). This is cutting edge technology and our foot clinic was one of the first to aquire it. Foot problems are a big risk in diabetics. Diabetics must constantly monitor their feet or face severe consequences, including amputation. With a diabetic foot, a wound as small as a blister from wearing a shoe that's too tight can cause a lot of damage. Diabetes decreases blood flow, so injuries are slow to heal. When your wound is not healing, it's at risk for infection. As a diabetic, your infections spread quickly. If you have diabetes, you should inspect your feet every day. Look for puncture wounds, bruises, pressure areas, redness, warmth, blisters, ulcers, scratches, cuts and nail problems. Get someone to help you, or use a mirror.

Camp helps kids with diabetes overcome obstacles, make new friends
By: Maria Miller ROCKWOOD, Pa. -- When a group of kids in Somerset County say they're high this week, it's not because of drugs;. It's their blood sugar they're talking about. That's because they all have diabetes. And a camp near Rockwood is helping them learn how to control it with others who are going through the same thing. By watching the kids, it's hard to tell there's anything wrong with them and that's because there isn't. Diabetes is a disease they've learned to live with every day. They have obstacles many people don't, but when they're at camp they're just like everyone else and they all understand. "You will miss your family," said Madison Nash. "I miss them every year but it's like a little get away and it's easy because you're with people who understand what you're going through and what's going on." It's the only diabetes camp in Western Pennsylvania and it's held in Somerset County at the YMCA's Camp Soles. More than 100 campers attend every year, learning how to control their disease and make new friends. "You get to be with people for a week that have also shared the same disease and struggle that you have," said camp counselor Ty Tracy. "It's a cool opportunity to forget about the diabetes and you're just normal, running around." With enough doctors and clinicians for one per every four campers, not to mention hundreds of peers who know what to do in case of a diabetic emergency, the kids are in good hands. And they do everything together, from counting their carb intake, to checking their blood sugar and giving themselves insulin as a group, even helping each other overcome new goals. "Whether it's putting their site for their insulin pump in for themselves, or whether it's getting better at counting carbs, as counselors we look at that at the beginning of the week and eventually they all accomplish it," Tracy said. As a diabetic himself, Tracy previously attended as a camper for 10 years and is now enrolled in medical school, hoping to help others with the same disease. "It's kind of taught me and given me a career hopefully," he said. Campers told6 News they never get bored. With games, archery and swimming to rock climbing and free falling, there's plenty of challenges to overcome. "I felt like I was at a second home almost because everybody understands," Nash said. "It's not like you're the odd ball out like at home. Counselors said some campers get to camp not knowing what to expect, but say none ever left homesick. Instead. many of them come to think of it as their second home and often become counselors themselves. The camp is run by the American Diabetes Association. The cost is about $600 per camper, with scholarships available thanks to several area businesses who also donate food for the week.

Health Literacy Basics for Health Professionals
Seven steps to improve your patient's health outcomes Sixty per cent of Canadians over the age of 16, and 88 per cent of seniors, have low health literacy. This means that most patients leave their appointments without understanding what they've been told. "It's more than handing out brochures," says Cheryl Rivard, a patients as partners coordinator who helped create a health literacy video for health professionals. "There are simple steps we can all take to improve our patients' health outcomes, build better patient relationships and increase the efficiency of our entire health system." Health literacy is about making informed decisions and taking actions to promote and protect health. When patients or clients are health literate, they are better at making healthy lifestyle choices, communicating with health care providers and accessing information and services. It's becoming a larger issue as the population ages and incidences of chronic disease rise. Three questions patients should ask at each appointment 1. What is my main problem? 2. What do I need to do? 3. Why is it important for me to do this? Seven tips to improve your patient's health literacy 1. Look for clues that your patient has low health literacy. Common signs include missed appointments, not taking medications and incomplete forms. 2. Use audio-visuals, models or pictures instead of written words. 3. Use demonstration. 4. Highlight or circle any take-home points on written materials. 5. Use plain language, explaining the most important concepts first, and speaking slowly with no acronyms or jargon. 6. Ask them to "teach back" what you've explained to them. What would they tell their family member about their appointment today? 7. Encourage them to establish a support network, which could include family support, online or community resources. About the video The video was championed by the VCH Integrated Primary and Community Care initiative. The regional team encourages collaboration between family physicians and health care professionals to move us toward an integrated primary, community and acute care system. It was a partnership between VCH, the BC College of Family Physicians and the BC Ministry of Health.

Leana Wen: What your doctor won’t disclose
Wouldn’t you want to know if your doctor was a paid spokesman for a drug company? Or held personal beliefs incompatible with the treatment you want?

DOCS: My Child Is A Monkey
DOCS: My Child Is A Monkey SUBSCRIBE: http://bit.ly/Oc61Hj Around 20,000 people in the USA own primates, and for a few thousand of them, their monkey is much more than a pet. It’s their child. Their ‘monkid’. This documentary looks at the dark side of the monkid phenomenon by following four individual stories: Monkey Dad Sean has just adopted an abused monkid named Shalad, and is trying to tame it with the help of legendary ‘monkey whisperer’ Lisa Whiteaker. Shalad has already attacked Sean – and he’s worried about the safety of his pregnant wife and two children. New Monkey Mum Justine has welcomed monkid George into her home, but has no idea what she is taking on. Some monkid owners want a ‘forever baby’: a cute toddler who’ll never grow up. Monkey Mum Charlene had that dream – but now primate Michael is approaching puberty and becoming aggressive. Finally, Audrey is an ‘empty nester’ who wanted to re-live the fun of raising little ones. However, vets tell her one of her monkids has developed diabetes, and that she’s killing them with too much love and doughnuts. Hear about the monkid breeders who profit from ripping newborn primates away from their mothers; learn about the sanctuaries who rescue monkids in trouble; and watch leading primatologists give their views on how this trend for humans to adopt monkeys is truly affecting the animals involved.
