Professional NBA player Adam Morrison inspires

Being a leader in his college years at not only Gonzaga University but the entire NCAA, Adam Morrison has left his mark in the basketball world. He is now playing for the Charlotte Bobcats and was the 3rd overall pick in the 2006 NBA draft. If you watch ESPN, chances are you have heard of this guy. Here is something you may not know about him though, he was diagnosed with diabetes in the 8th grade.

At the age of 13, Adam was playing in a game that went into overtime and began displaying seizer-like symptoms. It was then that he was taken to the hospital and diagnosed with diabetes. Despite this news, it had never stopped him from working hard and achieving his dream to play in the NBA. His next goal of an NBA championship may not be that far off with his heart and attitude.

Alternative Treatment for Diabetes

Being from the orient, I am a firm believer in the aspects and healings associated with alternative treatment. I am for a little bit of acupuncture and ever since I began taking Kung Fu classes I have done my best to avoid taking any medication. I believe the power of tai chi and the mental benefits you can gain from the practice can boost your health in exponential amounts. The same is true for those diagnosed with diabetes. Yoga, tai chi, aromatherapy and many other techniques have been used as alternative medicines to diabetes. By alternative I am simply saying that they are methods that differ from the conventional western techniques that the United States is used to. I am not saying either is better than the other, but if you care to, I suggest exploring your options. There are a few items that remain constant though, exercise, rest, and a good diet are the keys to success regardless of the type of medicine you employ.

American Diabetes Month in November 2008

Sure it’s a little ways away, but then again, if you think about it November is just around the corner. What’s great is that November is a great time of the year to look forward to.  Of course there is the great Thanksgiving gathering on the last Thursday of the month, but this is something else altogether.  This is another gathering with a larger family.  Every November is American Diabetes Month encouraging everyone to get involved and help others understand the complexities associated with diabetes. People are encouraged to get out and participate in events in order to help us all understand diabetes a little bit more. In the past, each week has had a different focus on the impact of diabetes in millions of Americans.

Like I said, it’s just around the corner so let’s get ready to come together and get the word out.

Diabetes in Dogs

Humans aren’t the only ones susceptible to diabetes. Our furry little friends known as “man’s best friend” can be diagnosed with the same disease. There is a great article on wikiHow.com explaining How you can detect diabetes in your dog. There are many potentially serious health problems with diabetes in dogs and owners must be attentive to their pup’s well-being so they can seek professional care at the earliest signs of sickness or decline, and before serious damage is done. The common age for dogs diagnosed with diabetes is five to seven years but juvenile diabetes is possible.

There is no cure for diabetes so the trick is to simply keep your dog healthy. Look out for signs of obesity and take your dogs on walks as often as you can. I like to take my puppies to local dog parks for some physical activity as well as socialization.
