Blurred vision –

Believe it or not, several times a year, I will see a patient that is referred for unexplained decrease in vision, OR, I will have a patient that keeps getting the “wrong” glasses. This is a very gradual process, so it often isn’t noticeable although a slight blurring of vision can be a symptom of diabetes. Yet I still not infrequently see people with newly diagnosed diabetes who have vivid memories of older relatives who had diabetes and then had these or other complications, and have the mistaken impression these complications will inevitably happen to them, too. Use Confrontation testing, Perimetry testing and Central field testing. Let’s “examine” the patient that has unexplained decreased vision. Your eyes may or may not go back to where they were before, but they will at least stabilise – so if there is a problem you will easily be able to fix it with glasses or contact lenses. Don’t smoke.

Company’s work with shoes for diabetics leads to expansion – SME | The Star Online

While all of us need to make sure our feet are healthy, it’s especially important for people with diabetes to keep an eye on their feet. One statistic, from the book Clinical Care of the Diabetic Foot, says that 15 percent of people with diabetes develop foot ulcers, 15 percent of those with ulcers will develop osteomyelitis (an infection in the bone) and of these, another 15 percent will require an amputation. Fortunately, the risks of being on your feet all day can be mitigated with rest and proper shoes. Latin phrase: “Anima Sana In Corpore Sano,” which translates as “A sound mind in a sound body.” The ASICS® mission is to create a healthy, happy lifestyle by promoting total health and fitness.

Actos – The Law Office of Bobby Garcia

San Diego, CA, June 11, 2005 – A new study presented today at the American Diabetes Association (ADA) 65th Annual Scientific Sessions showed that the type 2 diabetes drug ACTOS reduced C-reactive protein (CRP), a marker of inflammation and a risk factor for cardiovascular disease. After analysis of five-years worth of data at the interim of a ten-year long study, the U.S. A jury in state court in Las Vegas yesterday agreed with the company that Actos didn’t cause the women’s disease, handing Takeda its fifth victory out of six cases that have gone to trial over the drug’s alleged link to bladder cancer. In addition to being hit with a black box warning from the FDA linking the drug to serious cardiovascular problems, in 2011 the FDA recognized the increased risk of developing bladder cancer with Actos use. These two Big Pharma bulls managed to survive three of the earlier piranha attacks, but were finally overwhelmed by a jury’s decision to pay plaintiffs Terrence

Tilly’s Diabetes Homepage – Diabetes in Cats

Grocery and pet store shelves abound with a dizzying array of cat food. Our vet put him on insulin as well as a diabetic diet. This differs from dogs, which are omnivores and are quite tolerant of a moderate to high carbohydrate meal, even when diabetic (4,5). Finally, cats have reduced amylase and disaccarharide activity in the small intestine, reduced and delayed insulin secretion, and delayed gastric emptying (1-4). The only downside is the % of phosphorus as a dry matter percentage is 0.88% which seems to be on the higher end of the lower numbers and about double (0.4% of the Hills K/D). My other three are all spayed/neutered as well. My cats like the whites…yolks too.

As a scholarly community committed to the public good, DMU uses the creativity of its staff and students to create opportunities for positive change through #DMUlocal – something which has found a resonance in Louisville’s ambitions.
