HSE's failure to fill Waterford posts is impacting the long-term health of patients – Diabetes Ireland

More people with T2D are being admitted to hospitals; they are now generally sicker and have more complex health problems than ten years ago according to advocacy group Diabetes Action.

Over the two year period 2010-11 a shocking 21 people from Waterford underwent a diabetes related lower limb amputation and a further 87 required in-patient treatment for foot ulceration – one of the tragic and costly possible complications of the condition which a new HSE healthcare approach called integrated care should aim to reduce. Research has shown that with a timely intervention, approximately up to 80% of these may have been prevented.

Also, a new sanctioned post in integrated care for the Waterford health area remains unfilled, along with 16 others throughout Ireland.

Diabetes Action says that the

but - True!

Q. What did the book reviewer mean by saying that Elvis Presley had "died in very unKingly fashion"?

A. He was referring to best-selling author Mary Roach's book "Gulp: Adventures on the Alimentary Canal," where she begins by discussing 29-year-old J.W., who was found dead on the floor of the bathroom, possibly a "defecation-associated sudden death." By age 20, he had ballooned so much that he was hired by a freak show under the carnival name "Balloon Man." According to the autopsy, he had been "straining at stool."

"That's what killed Elvis too," declared Adrianne Noe, Director of the National Museum of Health and Medicine, which had on display its own "megacolon" - a colon of atypically enormous size. Noe had heard of Elvis's lifelong struggles with constipation and how when he was a child, his mother had had to

May Is Vaccination Awareness Month

May is pet vaccination awareness month, and many of you will have seen or heard the TV and radio adverts encouraging pet owners with the slogan "Don' t wait, vaccinate." The core message of this awareness campaign is that because our pets cannot protect themselves from the dangers of infectious diseases, the onus is on the owner to bring the animal to their vet to make sure that he/she is fully covered by vaccination so that their health is protected.

Young animals such as puppies and kittens need a minimum of two vaccinations administered two to three weeks apart, and all pets need annual vaccination on an ongoing basis. All this takes is an annual visit to the vet, which will also involve a full checkup and thorough

Go On The Reds

The advice is normally to eat your greens but a recent article urges us not to forget our reds - and pinks and purples for that matter. The pigment that gives the likes of beetroot, red cabbage, eggplant and berries their deep colour are antioxidant, anti inflammatory and antibacterial. As a result they can help reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke and there's also a buzz around their potential to reverse some of the effects of ageing on the brain caused by free radicals. In a test to measure a food's antioxidant ability to fight free radicals blueberries ranked the highest with prunes, blackberries and all those other reds not far behind. And yes that glass of red wine is rich in colour also but it's effect on the brain is another test.

Life Lessons

One of the greatest privileges of working as a complementary health practitioner is that you get to meet people from all walks of life. Each person brings different approaches, attitudes, philosophies and ways of thinking about life: the range and diversity of opinions never ceases to amaze me! These opinions have been a wonderful source of knowledge for me, and over the years, my clients have taught me many great lessons. So this week I would like to share some of the wisdom that people have revealed to me:

Life is not about getting back at someone who has hurt you.blaming other people for the things you say and do.

Adult generations of today are less healthy than their counterparts of previous generations

Despite their greater life expectancy, the adults of today are less "metabolically" healthy than their counterparts of previous generations. That's the conclusion of a large cohort study from the Netherlands which compared generational shifts in a range of well established metabolic risk factors for cardiovascular disease. Assessing the trends, the investigators concluded that "the more recently born generations are doing worse", and warn "that the prevalence of metabolic risk factors and the lifelong exposure to them have increased and probably will continue to increase".

The study, reported in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology, analysed data on more than 6,000 individuals in the Doetinchem Cohort Study, which began in 1987–1991 with follow-up examinations after six, 11, and 16 years. The principal risk factors measured were body weight, blood pressure,
