2a. Health Tip: Your Diabetes Health-Care Team - Who should be on it? Assemble an experienced team to help push the best diabetes care possible. If you cannot afford some of the following, remember that you may be covered by Medicare. Donít accept the first negative answer you get. Just keep trying until you get the best multi-disciplinary team you need.
2b. On Bad Cramps at Night, Weak Legs, Fear of Losing Legs
A diabetic sought advice from Dr. Peter Gott about bad cramps at night, legs getting very weak and fear of losing feet and lower legs. Hereís what Dr. Gott said: There are several cures for leg cramps. Some just remove a wrapper from a bar of soap. Put the soap under the bed sheet where the legs rest. Some find this eliminates leg cramps. Others rub the bar of soap on the calves of the legs and find success in this. Pickle juice and dill pickle included in the diet may help prevent muscle cramping. Of course continue taking your medication as prescribed by your doctor, exercise regularly and eat healthy.
3. A Success Quotation of the Month
There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done, There are thousands to prophesy failure; There are thousands to point out to you one by one, The dangers that wait to assail you. But just buckle in with a bit of a grin, Just take off your coat and go to it, And start in to sing as you tackle the thing That "cannot be done" ---and you'll do it. --Edgar A Guest.
How appropriate the above is! It shows how we work hard and even after years later, the same holds true, no matter the pain and the hardship, we keep going on. Total blood sugar control, that is our dream. In the process we will free ourselves of the meddlers and the doubters and we will just keep marching on.
4. And hereís the dessert recipe we promised you.
Easy to Prepare Brownies
The aforementioned recipe is a simpler version so it is easier to prepare. It is simple yet it is still a royal treatment. It certainly is a tasterís choice that wonít burst the budget, money and time-wise. This could easily become a fortified family favorite. Why? Because there is a hidden boost of extra nutrition there - by sneaking in that skim milk and walnut, the diet will be a little bit healthier.
5. Let's laugh together at this joke even if it's not funny. Laughing will help get us healthy.
Please God, make me thin, if you canít, at least make my friends fat.
Okay, that's still not funny so send us some jokes, will you? We're sure your jokes will be more funny than ours because we laugh at every little thing. Let's see who will send the funniest joke ever!
6. Got something to say?
That's all for now our friends. Thank you for taking the time to read this newsletter. Keep stress at bay; it is the wear and tear of daily living. Some are essential to exist but it is hazardous when it becomes a habit. With time, meditation will help you become more relaxed and stress-free. Take very good care of yourselves and we'll talk to you again soon. Until then, we wish the best for you.
