What’s the Bottom Line in Diabetes?

You guessed it – it is Blood Sugar Control. 
Getting good control of daily blood sugars isn’t as easy as it may seem.  Blood sugars are affected by medications, dietary input, physical activity, illness, traveling, stress, and day-to-day living.

We are never 100% in control of all these activities at the same time.  However, they are part of life that changes minute by minute.  People with diabetes are jugglers, needing to try to keep all these aspects of their lives in balance by constantly paying some attention to each of these areas at all times.

August is National Immunization Awareness Month

Even healthy people can become seriously ill and pass diseases on to others. Certain vaccines are recommended based on a person’s age, occupation, or health conditions (such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, diabetes or heart disease). Vaccines help prevent the spread of disease, especially to those who are most vulnerable to serious complications (such as infants and young children, the elderly, and those with chronic conditions and weakened immune systems).

Contact your VMC physician for more information on which vaccines are recommended for you. To schedule your appointment with a VMC physician call us at 559-738-7500.
