A Daughter's Apology
Dec 30, 2014 | 
My mother is a diabetic--something that shouldn't be someone's identifier, but unfortunately it has defined her life. This is my apology to her and to everyone struggling with un-understanding families. This is my account of what it is like from the outside looking in, knowing it is my potential future, and coming to terms with how I wasn't there for my mother.

Diabetes Goes To The Dogs
Dec 24, 2014 | 
Insulin-dependent diabetics often devote a great deal of time and anxiety worrying about their risks of experiencing a potentially fatal episode of hypoglycemia, especially at night while they sleep.
Where Do You Dexcom?
Dec 23, 2014 | 
The Continuous Glucose Monitoring System (CGM) is one of the most incredible advancements in diabetes care. I wore the Dexcom Seven Plus in 2010 but found the inaccuracies and false alarms to be cumbersome. After four months, I gave up on it, finding it too stressful. I tried again once Dexcom updated its software to G4 and have found it to be incredibly accurate. Now, six months after befriending the Dexcom, I have found I rely upon it to get me through the nights nearly worry-free.
Stressed for the Holidays? Here’s the Antidote
Dec 19, 2014 | 
Too much holiday hustle and bustle can be a prescription for stress, anxiety and even depression. Many  people feel bad during what is supposed to be one of the happiest times of the year.  

All the holiday fun takes a lot of work. Shopping, baking, decorating, partying, traveling – the additional activities and needs take up time and money, putting pressure on already busy schedules and limited finances.  People often eat more, drink more and sleep less. Sometimes, this season bring up feelings of loneliness, loss and grief. It can all be too much for our overloaded psyches.

Besides dampening the joy of the season, too much stress can affect our health. According to “Psychosomatic Medicine,” stress can produce secondary symptoms equivalent to complications from diabetes, hypertension or arthritis. Seventy percent of individuals who are stressed experience physical symptoms, lower productivity at work and disruptions in their family and social lives. Unfortunately, many physicians may misdiagnose the patient’s problem and prescribe medications for the symptoms, rather than recognizing the underlying problem. And of course, medications themselves can lead to unfortunate side effects.
Fat Cells- May Be Beneficial As Insulin For Type 2 Diabetes
Dec 19, 2014 | 
Brown fat – considered the good fat compared to villainous white fat cells - may make you thinner by not only burning extra calories, but also by using up excess glucose in the blood stream, just as effectively as insulin.
