Do you worry about your kids being bullied at school? My girls are adults, so I haven’t thought about this for a while, but a recent study found 8-of-10 parents are worried their children might get bullied.1
There is cause for concern when 22% of students ages 12-18 were bullied at school; and 20% of high school students say they were bullied on school property at least once in the past 12 months.2

About 5 months ago, she decided to try using an insulin pump, and she says it a huge improvement over giving herself shots. “It is so much easier to control my blood sugar with the pump,” said Camille.
An insulin pump is a small computerized device that adheres to the skin and injects insulin into the fatty tissue. Insulin is delivered in steady measured doses called the basal rate. When needed, a surge (or bolus) dose can be made—usually around mealtime.

All month long, people have worn purple, buildings have been illuminated in purple and social media photos have carried purple banners. This is all to bring awareness during Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month.
Alzheimer’s is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States and, unfortunately, there is no cure. (1) Now, more than ever, families are faced with providing care for a family member with the disease. Continue reading
