Submitted by Mariela Miranda on 11:36

Medical supplies online – more specifically, glucose tablets – are better than sugary food or drinks to manage the symptoms of low blood sugar, according to a new study. Also known as hypoglycemia, low blood sugar is more often than not associated with diabetes, or rather with its treatment. Taking too much insulin – as well as other diabetes medications – can cause blood sugar to drop to dangerous levels. However, diabetics can also experience hypoglycemia if they skip a meal or exercise too much. The symptoms of low blood sugar include:

Many people have the tendency to hit the gym or go for a run when they are mad.  We grew up hearing that exercise make us happy, that it releases endorphins and that it takes the stress away. It’s only natural and logical, especially if you are into sports, to want to exercise when you are mad.  However new studies show that you might want to wait a while for the anger to cool off before you get into extreme physical activity.  In your attempt to calm yourself through exercise, you will be tripling the risk of suffering from a heart attack up to 1 hour after.

Job insecurity? You just may need diabetic medical supplies

Sometimes an employee’s only motivation to work just hard enough not to get fired is the fear of losing their job, but that fear may be responsible for a 19% increased risk of being diagnosed with diabetes – and thus require medical supplies such as glucose meters and tests strips –, according to a new study. The researchers couldn’t find a cause-and-effect relationship between job insecurity and diabetes, but lead author Jane Ferrie, of the University of Bristol and University College London in the U.K., said that the findings could be a sort of missing link. Job insecurity has been previously associated with a higher body mass index (BMI), which in turn is a risk factor for diabetes. Work-related stress can result in overeating and other unhealthy practices, and stress hormones can directly cause weight gain.

They say American society is a litigious one, and god willing, it will continue to be so in the foreseeable future. A new rule, which guarantees the rights of patients and their relatives – also known as caregivers – to sue long-term care facilities in court as opposed to settling disputes in arbitration, was recently released by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Beginning in November, the rule will ban the more than 15,000 facilities that receive money from Medicare or Medicaid from requiring residents to sign nursing home contracts including so-called pre-dispute binding arbitration clauses.

 Elderly medical supplies such as bars, bathtub mats, bed rails, canes and many more can help prevent injury and death in your aging loved one. All of these products are designed to help prevent falls, which are the leading cause of injury and death among older Americans, according to the CDC. Did you know that every second of every day in the United States an adult aged 65 or older falls? And if an older adult falls and no one is around to hear them, do they make a sound? Yes, they do – provided they own a Smart Patient Alarm. “Older adult falls are increasing and, sadly, often herald the end of independence,” CDC Director Tom Frieden said. “Healthcare providers can make fall prevention a routine part of care in their practice, and older adults can take steps to protect themselves.”

Rehab products and pain management supplies could help elderly adults be more physically active. Over 30 million American people aged 50 or older are physically inactive, a new CDC study published in the latest Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report found. It’s no secret that aging individuals become increasingly prone to painful, crippling conditions such as arthritis, which in turn result in a sedentary lifestyle. This, added to heart disease, type 2 diabetes, dementia, some cancers, and other conditions cancers that become more common as people age, puts the elderly at an increased risk of early death.

Scientists at the Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute and the Center for BrainHealth at The University of Texas at Dallas found that there might be a sort of Tinkerbell effect at play when it comes to craving relief. That is to say, smokers not only had to smoke a cigarette with nicotine, but they also had to believe that the cigarette contained nicotine in order to satisfy cravings. No word on whether they had to clap as well.
