Really Great Diabetes Information, From Medicare of All Places

Well, this is a surprise. The Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and Modernization Act (MMA) of 2003 contains a little known section, Section 1013, that has actually led to something really useful: Up-to-date information about diabetes culled from real research and presented in language that we all can understand. Section 1013 authorizes the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) to compare the effectiveness of different approaches to difficult health problems and to make that information accessible and understandable to "decisionmakers": that is, you, me, and our doctors. And diabetes is one of the difficult health problems to which the AHRQ is directing its attention.

Shop Till You Drop For Your Favorite Diabetes Charity

Times are hard this year, and it's that much harder to make your holiday money stretch very far. Charities, food banks, and other causes are feeling the pinch.

When Gina Capone, a thirty-something type 1 for eight years, got married this year, she and her husband decided it was time to start thinking about having a baby. Like all women with diabetes who are planning a pregnancy, Gina needs her A1c to be as low as possible in order to prevent complications for her and her baby. This strict control can be very challenging and time-consuming, requiring up to 20 blood sugar tests a day.

Online Personal Health Records - A Valuable Tool
Online Personal Health Records - A Valuable Tool

Fires.  Earthquakes.  Floods.  Hurricanes.  Things we don't want to think about, that we don't think can happen to us.  But they can.  Hurricane Katrina illustrated how quickly emergencies can arise that force people to abandon their homes.  In the rush to get to safety, sometimes vital items are lost or forgotten.  Health records are one of those things.
