Take a hike—or at least a neighborhood stroll

May 12, 2015Theresa Flaherty, Managing Editor

Last week, the American Diabetes Association proclaimed May 6 “Get Fit, Don't Sit'' Day. You've heard the reports over the past few months: working at our desks, playing on computers, watching the tube, etc., is making us unhealthy. A study published in January links sedentary lifestyles to a 91% increase in Type 2 diabetes. Coincidentally, a few days prior I had bought a pedometer—the old school kind that clips to your belt and, at $15, doesn't break the bank. Michelle the dietician...

Doughnuts or diabetes? Your choice.

November 15, 2012Theresa Flaherty, Managing Editor

This is such a disappointment. America's Type 2 diabetes problem just keeps getting worse, according to a new study from the CDC. Despite a constant deluge of articles and studies on the dangers of—and the contributing factors to—diabetes, it appears people aren't paying attention. The study actually looks at the rocketing rates by stte and in several states, including right here in Maine, the rates more than doubled. Guess we Yanks should stop pointing our formerly-slim fingers at Mississippi...

Diabetes: Some of us are all too aware

November 2, 2011Theresa Flaherty, Managing Editor

Yesterday, as I was writing this blog, I found myself wondering at my use of the word "awareness." What does it mean, exactly? I worried that it's tossed around all too frequently to cover, well, everything. Certainly we here at HME News use it frequently (sleep apnea awareness, awareness of the the value of home care). Is "awareness" in and of itself, enough? Then, this morning over breakfast (skim milk, soy sausage, reduced sugar oatmeal) I came across an article in my new issue of Diabetes Forecast...

The Holocaust, diabetes and a tale of resilience

April 16, 2010Theresa Flaherty, Managing Editor

Here's a shout out to a blog I stumbled across this morning. It's called a sweet life and it's about diabetes. It caught my eye because a recent posting contained a fascinating history lesson. After wondering how people with Type 1 diabetes managed to survive the Holocaust, the blogger dug up a story about Eva Saxl, who, along with her husband, fled Nazi-occupied Prague for a Jewish ghetto in Shanghai, which was Japanese occupied at the time. The Japanese began shutting down pharmacies and insulin...
