    D-is-for-Diabetes (website of the week!)

    D-is-for-Diabetes claims to be "A fabulous website for people with diabetes to learn and to share.  By health professionals.  For beginners, experts, and everyone in between!"  And it is.

    The website is authored by Dr. Bill Quick and Stephanie Schwartz Quick, both of whom are retired diabetes health care professionals. Bill's an endocrinologist, and his wife Steph is a diabetes nurse educator. They have been active with other diabetes websites in the past, so after Bill's retirement from his day-job last year, they decided to start this new adventure this past Spring.

    D-is-for-Diabetes already has over 600 webpages of information, which include basic information, a diabetes dictionary, a listing of acronyms, a listing of the "Diabetes Website of the Day," plus almost 300 commentaries Bill's written over the past few years, corporate and governmental press releases and more!

    Tip of the Week - ABCs of Diabetes

    • A1c test reveals what your average blood sugar has been running over the past 3 months.  According to the National Institutes of Health, for every percentage point decrease in A1c, risk for eye, kidney, or nerve complications are reduced by 40%.
    • Blood pressure indicates risk for heart disease when elevated.  The American Diabetes Association (ADA) recommends a blood pressure less than 130/80 for those with Diabetes.
    • Cholesterol that is commonly called the bad cholesterol is known as LDL cholesterol.  This bad cholesterol increases risk for heart disease.  The ADA recommends a LDL cholesterol level below 100 mg/dl for those with Diabetes.

    Ask for these tests at your next doctor's visit.

    Weekly Exercise Tip

    Minimize impact on joints with shoes designed for your activity.

    If you walk for exercise, purchase walking shoes (and if you jog or run purchase running shoes).  Shoes designed for a specific activity can help prevent injury to joints and reduce foot, ankle, and knee stress. Replace running and walking shoes every three months.  *Tennis shoes & cross-trainer shoes are not the same as running shoes and walking shoes.
