Ben Rue Partnering With New Buck Off Diabetes Campaign | People.com

Ben Rue was just 14 when he was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes, previously known asjuvenile diabetes. The revelation, he says, made the country singer feel like my whole life was over. My mother is a nurse and always brought home little gadgets to test on her boys for fun and so she brought home a blood sugar test one day to test all of us, recalls Rue. His, he says, was sky high. I thought I had won something before I realized it wasnt a good thing. After meeting with a doctor, the I Cant Wait (Be My Wife) singer says he realized the signs had all been there though as a teenager, he just brushed them off. Admits Rue, I had been wetting the bed a little bit and as a 14-year-old kid I was a little bit embarrassed about that. I remembered I had symptoms of some sort of dizziness and being thirsty a lot, but I had no idea. The lifestyle change came at Rue fast: We hadnt covered that in health class yet, he jokes. As a freshman in high school, he was focused on building friendships and joining sports teams, and sometimes felt ashamed that he had to break off to test his blood sugar. I would sneak away to the bathroom and test in the stall so no one saw me, he tells PEOPLE. So I saw it Continue reading >>

    I am currently taking three different medications (metformin,levoxythyroxine, & jolivette) and the side affects are stomach pain or cramps. They come at different times of the day and can get pretty painful. I take an ibuprofen almost daily when they start. Is there something I can take to stop the cramps before they start or get too bad?

  2. Metformin

    So when I read that metformin causes gas/upset stomach/diarrhea they weren't kidding. It's been about a month now and I want to know...am I going to be plagued with diarrhea forever???? It doesn't seem worth it. I'm scared to eat because I don't know what's going to make my upset stomach and diarrhea even worse than it already is.

New York State Diabetes Campaign

The New York State Health Foundation (NYSHealth) selected CHCANYS as their first clinical partner to participate in a five-year, $35 million campaign, the New York State Diabetes Campaign (here referred to as the Campaign). The goal of the Campaign is to reverse the diabetes epidemic in New York State by focusing on: CHCANYS currently strives to meet these goals with New York States federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) through the use of the National Committee for Quality Assurance Diabetes Recognition Program (NCQA DRP) and Bridges to Excellence (BTE) Diabetes Care Recognition Program. The NCQA DRP and BTE DCR are voluntary programs for practices to receive recognition for delivering quality diabetes care. Recognized health centers enjoy benefits such as being distinguished as leaders in the community of practice and leverage NCQA DRP data abstraction efforts for incentives such as that received through the Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) Recognition. CHCANYS supports the NYS Health Foundations Meeting the Mark. Goals of this initiative include assisting at least 3,000 physicians in achieving NCQA or BTE diabetes recognition and providing $2,500 per physician who achie Continue reading >>

    Lantus is a long acting (24 hr) that generally has a flat profile. NPH is an intermediate acting insulin (lasting 6-8 hrs) that peaks in action at about 4 hrs.
    Lantus is overall a much better choice for basal coverage as it's more steadily absorbed (NPH is very variable based on injection site and activity) and the peak can be a killer. Ideally on Lantus, one should be able to skip meals and not go low.
    The best insulin plan short of a pump is Lantus or Levemir once or twice a day with coverage for meals based on bg and carb intake with Apidra, Humalog, or Novolog. However, this means an injection of Lantus once or twice daily, plus a injection every time food is eaten and when bg is high. This often meals 4+ shots a day, and some people aren't willing to do that.
    Enter in NPH. Notice that nice spike NPH has? If injected in the morning, that spike can be used to cover lunch. It's much hard to work than a fast acting insulin, as activity and carb intake need to be consistent, and it can't be used to cover an already high bg, but it can save someone a shot.
    Also, some people have Dawn Phenomenon, and if injected at bedtime, NPH's peak can cover the 3am spike some people tend to have.
    So in short, it has it's purpose. It may be used in conjunction with Lantus if the person overall needs more insulin coverage than their NPH dose can provide without the peak causing lows.
    NPH and Lantus can work, but it takes careful bg analysis and trial an error. It's not going to be a good regimen for most people. From the sounds of it, between the quite bad a1c you quote (8.6 is very out of control, not a little) and the fact that it sounds like you have many patients on it, I'm guessing your prescribers just don't know how to use insulin well (a common problem).

    Thanks very much and yeah the fact that I'm dealing with LTC MDs is one of the things that's taking some getting used to they are not very receptive to suggestions that require additional work on their part... no w/e, no holidays, no rotation may not be worth it in the long run... well again thanks!!

  3. classicdame

    also, Lantus is an analog, while NPR is regular insulin with protamine added to "slow it down". That is why they cannot be mixed. Mixing changes the action of both.

What is HEALTH ADVOCACY? What does HEALTH ADVOCACY mean? HEALTH ADVOCACY meaning - HEALTH ADVOCACY definition - HEALTH ADVOCACY explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/... license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6Uu... Health advocacy encompasses direct service to the individual or family as well as activities that promote health and access to health care in communities and the larger public. Advocates support and promote the rights of the patient in the health care arena, help build capacity to improve community health and enhance health policy initiatives focused on available, safe and quality care. Health advocates are best suited to address the challenge of patient-centered care in our complex healthcare system. The Institute of Medicine (IOM) defines patient-centered care as: Health care that establishes a partnership among practitioners, patients, and their families (when appropriate) to ensure that decisions respect patients wants, needs, and preferences and that patients have the education and support they need to make decisions and participate in their own care.

Advocacy Campaigns | Diabetes Canada

Targeted public awareness and political campaigns are tools on which Diabetes Canada relies on to influence positive changes for Canadians living with diabetes.

    Er, I'm a little nervous about the $25 coupon for the SoloStar pen (which sounds incredible, because I paid $148 for the stupid vial which is now half empty (or half full if you're an optimist)). To get the pharmacy card, you have to fill out information on birth date, name, address, etc.
    If it's in my name, then I can have some insurance issues in the future claiming that I myself am a diabetic (all of this stuff becomes public record).
    If I enter my cat's name and birth date, then they might claim the person must be at least 18 years old to get the coupon (I imagine).
    Has anyone successfully filled out this thing and used it? And, if so, did you put in your information or your cat's?
    Thanks so much.
    DZ and Sarah

    I haven't used it but did get one.
    I registered it in my kitty's name with her approx. dob. After filling it out, I got a message from lantus that it was now activated and could be used.
    I took it to Walmart and asked if they accepted it and they said 'yes'.
    My vial is still half full too so I'm still using that.
