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.

June is National Aphasia Awareness Month

In the U.S. nearly 2 million people live with aphasia and still many have likely never heard of it. Aphasia is a progressive and degenerative communication disorder that can affect speech and language, both verbal and written.

Aphasia typically results after a brain injury, such as a stroke, head trauma, or tumor, causing brain cell damage to the areas of the brain responsible for speech and or communication as well as body control on either the left or right hand side of the body.
