Yes I miss spelled it. It is Zevia. So sorry my memory is bad sometimes and I get things like simple spelling wrong. Thanks for correcting me, I appreciate it. There is a drink called Ziva energy that I have heard about but I have never tried it. Sorry for the mix up. Hey James, you're up early OR late. I think you're an hour earlier than me, there in Nevada. I did the same research and only found references to Ziva to the TV show, NCIS, Maybe "Trivia?" Good to hear from you & hope you're doing well there in "Sin City." LOL Thanks, I had a great birthday with family & 2 friends. Early on my B.D. morning, wife told me that my BD present was out in the yard. Knowing her creativity, I stumbled outside and there it was, a miniature 5 ft. tall metal windmill that spins in the wind! I grew up with windmills and love them (except when there's no wind). Hey, be sure and give James a big hug from ol' Tony! His postings have inspired me many times. Also if you are a gambler,while in Las Vegas, may the "dice" roll your way and the "cards" fall in your favor. Thanks for the birthday greeting James. Sometimes I need a calculator to figure my age, but that's OK. :o) I'd still like to hear from someone about "ziva." Sorry I missed your birthday, Happy Belated Birthday Tony, in Texas. I was raised in Texarkana. Which is in Texas and Arkansas. I do have family in Texas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Arizona, that's all that I'm sure of. Actually ( I'm sorry ) I spelled it wrong. It's Zevia. It comes in 15 different flavors with stevia all naturally sweetened. Some are even zero calories. My favorit is cherry cola & ginger rootbeer. Checked out Zevia while shopping today. Whoa way out of my league price wise. I had no idea it was that expensive. I try to get some when the grocery store, or the he Continue reading >>

My Common Enemy | Scrubs Wiki | Fandom Powered By Wikia

Dear God, she has an actual skip in her step. Dr. Cox on Molly "My Common Enemy" is the seventh episode of Scrubs' fourth season. Dr. Cox and Dr. Kelso try to stop Molly ( Heather Graham ) from being so happy. J.D. gets annoyed that Elliot and Dan have started a relationship. Turk regrets using diabetes to his advantage to get food from Carla , when she turns down a job offer because of it. Ever since Turk discovered that he has Type II Diabetes , he has been using the disease as an excuse to get pre-prepared food from Carla. However, his selfishness comes back to haunt him, as he discovers that Carla has been promoted to Administrative Supervisor, which pays an extra $7,000 a year, but turns it down because she wants more time to take care of Turk. Overwhelmed with guilt, Turk convinces Dr. Kelso to re-offer her the job by agreeing to kill the bat that has been hibernating in Kelso's attic. Shortly thereafter, he confesses to Carla about using his diabetes as a gimmick, but she turns down the job again anyway. This forces Carla to confess that she never actually wanted the job because she wanted to continue working with patients, so she used Turk's diabetes as an excuse to turn it down. After the death of Sam Dorian , Dan has been staying at J.D. 's apartment. Elliot has been spending a lot of time with him, under the guise of consolation. However, when resting in the on-call room, J.D. finds both Dan and Elliot kissing in the bunk beneath him. Initially, he admits that the discovery doesn't bother him, but Turk convinces him to use the information to his advantage, in hopes that it will guilt Elliot into forgiving him for the painful break up they had to endure since Turk and Carla's wedding. The plan works, and Elliot ends up breaking up with Dan. However, J.D. late Continue reading >>

In-hospital Mortality Risk Increases With Dido Time For Stemi Patients

In-hospital Mortality Risk Increases With Dido Time For Stemi Patients

In-Hospital Mortality Risk Increases With DIDO Time for STEMI Patients Major Finding: The recommended door-in to door-out time of 30 minutes or less was observed in only 11% of transferred STEMI patients requiring revascularization. Data Source: Retrospective analysis of 14,821 patients with STEMI transferred to 298 STEMI receiving hospitals for primary PCI. Disclosures: The American College of Cardiology Foundations National Cardiovascular Data Registry sponsored the study. The ACTION Registry-GWTG is supported in part by the Bristol-Myers Squibb partnership. Dr. Wang reports receiving research grants from the BMS/Sanofi partnership, Schering Plough/Merck, The Medicines Company, Heartscape, Canyon Pharmaceuticals and Eli Lilly/Daiichi Sankyo Alliance, as well as consulting fees/honoraria from Medco and Astra Zeneca. Four of her coauthors report financial relationships with several drug firms. Only 11% of patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction who presented at a hospital without acute percutaneous coronary intervention capability got in and out of the referral hospital within the recommended benchmark of 30 minutes or less, in a retrospective analysis of 14,821 patients. Moreover, STEMI patients who had a door-in to door-out (DIDO) time of more than 30 minutes had significantly higher in-hospital mortality of 5.9% compared with 2.7% for patients with a DIDO time of 30 minutes or less. This mortality risk remained significant even after adjustment for differences in baseline patient characteristics and presenting features (adjusted odds ratio 1.56), Dr. Tracy Y. Wang and her associates reportedin the June 22/29 issue of JAMA (2011;305:2540-7). "DIDO time is a useful performance measure attributable to STEMI referral hospitals that can be used to assess and ite Continue reading >>

Chandler's Diabetes Story

Chandler's Diabetes Story

en espaolLa historia de la diabetes de Chandler How much do you know about diabetes? You might know that it's a condition that happens when a person's body can't control the amount of sugar (or glucose) in the blood. You also might know that people with diabetes have to pay attention to what they eat and get shots to help them stay healthy. But what's it like to live with diabetes every day? Just ask Chandler! Chandler is 11 years old now, but he found out he had diabetes a few days after his fourth birthday. He's been living with diabetes for more than half his life already! But diabetes doesn't stop him from doing all the things he likes. Even though he has to get shots and be aware of what he eats, he's still a very active guy. He loves to play baseball, skateboard, ride his bike, play video games, read, fish, swim, and collect Yu-Gi-Oh cards and baseball cards. He also likes watching all kinds of sports. Some kids may have heard about diabetes but have never met someone with it. So we asked Chandler: "What do kids who don't have diabetes need to know about it?" He said kids need to know that "you can't catch it and it isn't contagious." He also said that kids should learn about diabetes "so you can help a diabetic person if they're in trouble." So how did Chandler find out he had diabetes? It all started right before his 4-year checkup. His mom and dad noticed that he was drinking a whole lot and always having to go to the bathroom. He would wake up very thirsty and have to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night. At the checkup, his mom told Chandler's doctor about what was going on. The doctor asked Chandler to do a urine (pee) test. When the results came back, the doctor told Chandler that he needed to go to the hospital because he probably had diabetes. A Continue reading >>

The Six Tell-tale Signs That May Mean You Have Diabetes

The Six Tell-tale Signs That May Mean You Have Diabetes

Someone is diagnosed with diabetes mellitus every five minutes or so around the country and it has been described as the biggest challenge to Australia’s health system. Already, 1.2 million Australians have been diagnosed[i], yet a massive half a million people are thought to have diabetes without knowing it yet. Are you that one in half a million? Of those who have diabetes, around 10 per cent have type 1 diabetes (where no insulin is produced) while around 85 per cent have type 2 diabetes[ii] (where insulin is produced but isn’t used by the body). The other five per cent are women who have diabetes triggered by pregnancy. Type 2 diabetes is strongly linked with being overweight – especially carrying too much weight around the middle, and with being inactive. Having a family history of type 2 diabetes also increases your risk. The signs and symptoms of type 2 diabetes aren’t always as obvious. It’s often diagnosed during a routine check-up at the GP. And, although the symptoms are often mild and develop gradually over a number of years, there are a few tell-tale signs. If you have any of these symptoms – or you know someone who does – go and get checked out by your GP. Hunger and fatigue. Your body and brain cells rely on a tiny sugar called glucose to provide the fuel they need to function properly. Your body tries to regulate your blood glucose level and keep it within very narrow limits. To physically enter the cells and provide nourishment, your body needs the hormone insulin. Insulin ‘holds hands’ with glucose to get it into where it needs to be. If your body becomes resistant to insulin, which can happen when there is too much fat in your cells (this distorts the shape of the membranes making it difficult for insulin to enter them) and the hormo Continue reading >>

My Daughter Has Type 1 Diabetes-help!

My Daughter Has Type 1 Diabetes-help!

Hello-I have five children, 10, 8, 5-year old twins and almost 3-year-old. My 5-year-old daughter was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes last week. This past Tuesday was her first day back at school--very scary. She never felt sick because I diagnosed it so early. She wet her bed once and got up a few times in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom. I had a childhood friend who was diagnosed in 5th grade so I remembered all the signs and my family is all in the medical field. We caught it so early that she never felt sick. She has no idea what a "low" feels like which scares me. I don't feel confident that she'll go to a teacher when she starts to feel dizzy, shaky or sweaty. This first week back I went to all her recesses, lunch and gym classes. There are so many people who keep saying they know someone who has it and that it will all become second nature and be so easy in time, but I keep hearing that from people who don't have a diabetic child. I also think this would be a very different experience if I only had one child. But juggling all the other kids activities and carb counting all her meals has been a challenge, especially since the others can have their snacks at a moments notice while she has to wait to have her blood sugar checked. My husband is gone Monday-Thursday for work, so the responsibility really falls on me most of the time. I think my tears are not only for her health but for the pressure I feel in having to do most of the work for so many years until she's more independent. What I'm really writing about is to find out if anyone here is from the Philippines. We had already planned a 5-week trip to visit family there and had thought it was going to be a fun-filled, carefree 5 weeks of no scheduled kids activities and eating out at great restaura Continue reading >>

Diabetes Mood Swings?

Diabetes Mood Swings?

Diabetes Forum The Global Diabetes Community Find support, ask questions and share your experiences. Join the community shaleighgrainger Don't have diabetes Newbie I'm 19 I haven't got diabetes myself but my partner who I have been with for 3 years has type 1 diabetes, he is 25 and he was diagnosed at 19. he injects with insulin but he has really bad mood swings and sometimes it's even made me cry. I know he don't mean to do it and I know that diabetes can affect your emotions and mood swings but he is struggling to find away to control them and I sometimes don't know how to take the situation. I wondered if anyone could help me on ways that I can help him and ways he can help himself. I know they say that diet can help but he is a very fussy eater and only likes certain foods. please if anyone knows anything or anyway to help! Hi @shaleighgrainger and welcome to the forum. Sorry to hear about your experiences. Mood swings are quite common in diabetes and are usually directly correlated with blood glucose levels. When someone is high or low, they can be, and often are, a different person. The tricky bit is learning to manage these levels such that they don't change too much or too violently. Has your partner had any education as to how to manage his diabetes himself and is he aware of what he is doing and how it affects you? Ask yer bloke to sign up here find out.. Part of winning the battle is helping youself! Ask yer bloke to sign up here find out.. Part of winning the battle is helping youself! This is sound advice.

Blog - Fido's Playground

Recently we have cared for a diabetic cat, visiting him twice a day to give his insulin injections. His name is Trinity and his photo runs alongside this blog. Diabetes is a disease caused by the body's inability to produce enough insulin to regulate blood sugar. After a cat eats, his digestive system breaks food into various components, including glucose. Glucose is carried into the cats cells by insulin. When a cat does not produce insulin or cannot utilize it normally, its blood sugar levels elevate. The result is hyperglycemia, which, if left untreated, can cause many complicated health problems for a cat. It is important to understand, however, that diabetes is considered a manageable disorderand many diabetic cats can lead happy, healthy lives. Some may even go into remission. Type Iis the most common and characterized by the cats inability to produce insulin Type IIis where the cats body does not process insulin correctly. In both cases the cat does not properly digest sugar brought into the body by the food supply and their blood sugar levels rise. Change in appetite (either increased or decreased) Excessive thirst/increase in water consumption A gait that is stilted or wobbly normally in the back legs Cats with diabetes will urinate excessively as the body tries to get rid of the sugar not being processed correctly. If you notice that your cat's litter box needs to be changed more frequently than usual, this could be a warning sign. Cats with the disease also may drink more water than usual in an attempt to quench their thirst and hunger. Also because the cat's body is unable to process the sugars in food, they may regurgitate their meal after eating. The most important factors in the development of diabetes seem to be obesity, gender (male cats are more commo Continue reading >>

JAMA: 2011-06-22, Vol. 305, No. 24, This Week's Audio Commentary DMARDs and Diabetes Risk in Arthritis and Psoriasis Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and psoriasis are associated with an increased risk of insulin resistance and diabetes, and there is some evidence that anti-inflammatory and disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs) may reduce these risks. In a retrospective cohort study of 13905 patients with rheumatoid arthritis or psoriasis, Solomon and colleagues Article assessed the risk of incident diabetes associated with use of specific disease-modifying medications. The authors report that the adjusted risk of diabetes was lower among patients who initiated treatment with a tumor necrosis factor inhibitor or hydroxychloroquine compared with other nonbiologic DMARDs. In an editorial, Bongartz and Kudva Article discuss the possible pleiotropic effects of specific anti-inflammatory agents. Temporal Trends in Diabetic Kidney Disease de Boer and colleagues assessed temporal changes in the prevalence of diabetic kidney disease in the United States in an analysis of data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys. The authors found that between 1988 and 2008 the prevalence of diabetic kidney disease increased in direct proportion to the prevalence of diabetes, and among persons with diabetes, the prevalence of diabetic kidney disease did not change despite increased use of diabetes-related medications.

More Than 10,000 Mackay Residents Are Living With Diabetes

More Than 10,000 Mackay Residents Are Living With Diabetes

More than 10,000 Mackay residents are living with diabetes I moved to Mackay in 2011 and havent looked back since.Ive grown to enjoy the laidback Mackay lifestyle and all it has to offer.Over the years I have also spent time visiting the Whitsundays and my favourite place to date would be Whitehaven Beach.Being on the go all the time in a fast-paced job I also cant go past a good cup of coffee.When it comes to writing, I love to meet residents in the community and find about their life as I feel everyone has an interesting story to tell. MORE than 10,000 Mackay residents are living with type 2 diabetes, a number which has increased by 43% in the past four years. The rising number of people who have the disease is not only of great concern to Diabetes Queensland but many Mackay residents have also registered fears about the growing rate. Research commissioned by Roy Morgan for Diabetes Queensland comes as National Diabetes Week 2013 (July14-20) comes to an end. The research found people living in regional Queensland are more concerned about diabetes with 70% believing diabetes was becoming an epidemic, compared to 61% of people in Brisbane. Diabetes Queensland chief executive officer Michelle Trute said the increasing number of people living with diabetes in Mackay may be why the results between regional and metropolitan Queenslanders could be differing. "More than 8.5% of Mackay residents live with diabetes, which is in line with the state average of 8.6%," Ms Trute said. "The diabetes epidemic is a clear and present danger in Mackay and I believe this may be driving the heightened concern." Ms Trute said the mining work culture could also lead to bad lifestyle habits. "Mining work can be sedentary and the types of shift patterns typically associated with FIFO and DIDO Continue reading >>

The Proteasome Inhibitor Bortezomib Controls Indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase 1 Breakdown And Restores Immune Regulation In Autoimmune Diabetes

The Proteasome Inhibitor Bortezomib Controls Indoleamine 2,3-Dioxygenase 1 Breakdown and Restores Immune Regulation in Autoimmune Diabetes We are experimenting with display styles that make it easier to read articles in PMC. The ePub format uses eBook readers, which have several "ease of reading" features already built in. The ePub format is best viewed in the iBooks reader. You may notice problems with the display of certain parts of an article in other eReaders. Generating an ePub file may take a long time, please be patient. The Proteasome Inhibitor Bortezomib Controls Indoleamine 2,3-Dioxygenase 1 Breakdown and Restores Immune Regulation in Autoimmune Diabetes Giada Mondanelli, Elisa Albini, [...], and Ciriana Orabona Bortezomib (BTZ) is a first-in-class proteasome inhibitor approved for the therapy of multiple myeloma that also displays unique regulatory activities on immune cells. The enzyme indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase 1 (IDO1) is a tryptophan metabolizing enzyme exerting potent immunoregulatory effects when expressed in dendritic cells (DCs), the most potent antigen-presenting cells capable of promoting either immunity or tolerance. We previously demonstrated that, in inflammatory conditions, IDO1 is subjected to proteasomal degradation in DCs, turning these cells from immunoregulatory to immunostimulatory. In non-obese diabetic (NOD) mice, an experimental model of autoimmune diabetes, we also identified an IDO1 defect such that the DCs do not develop tolerance toward pancreatic islet autoantigens. We found that BTZ rescues IDO1 protein expression in vitro in a particular subset of DCs, i.e., plasmacytoid DCs (pDCs) from NOD mice. When administered in vivo to prediabetic mice, the drug prevented diabetes onset through IDO1- and pDC-dependent mechanisms. Although Continue reading >>
