• Diabetes Myths Botox Day Tomorrow, June18! $100 off fillers like Juvederm! Summer Specials on Coolsculpting and Micropeels

    Botox Day is tomorrow, June 18 with discounts on Botox and fillers such as Juvederm. Botox is $13/unit or $195/syringe (normally $16/unit and $240/syringe). Fillers are $100 off our regular price. Juvederm is the most common filler for “raising” facial wrinkles. Voluma is an injectable filler that augments and lifts the cheeks and Volbella and Vollure subtly augment the lips and improve perioral wrinkles.

    Mused after going to House of France in Oakley and purchasing some furniture and lighting. A furniture and home decorating store with quality but reasonable prices, the service is exceptional. Worth visiting whether looking for a small piece to complete a room or redesigning part of your house. Near Madtree Brewery and Crossroads Church.

    Myths of Type 2 Diabetes

    Myth 1: Sugar is the cause of diabetes. Adult onset diabetes develops from sugar AND other factors such as being overweight, physically inactive, smoking, and a poor diet. Avoiding food high in added sugars and correcting the above will help diabetes.

    Myth 2: You only need to focus on your blood sugar. Diabetes also causes abnormalities in fat metabolism, blood cholesterol, blood pressure, blood vessel function, blood clotting and the immune system. Focus on healthy food choices and lifestyle habits to improve all aspects of your health.

    (Did You Know? Type 1 diabetes occurs when the autoimmune system attacks insulin producing cells and leads to loss of all insulin. Type 2 (95% of diabetics) develops when the body becomes resistant to the normal effects of insulin.)

    Myth 3: Avoid all carbohydrates. It’s important to distinguish between healthy carbohydrates and unhealthy. Complex carbohydrates like vegetables, some fruits, and nuts are part of a healthy diet which improves blood sugars. Simple carbohydrates like white bread, most rice and pastas, and of course, candy and soda are to be minimalized.

    Myth 4: Focus on aerobic exercise for weight loss to control blood sugars. All physical activity helps blood sugars. The current recommendation is at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity each week.

    Myth 5: Type 2 diabetes is incurable. Some experts believe this while others feel that lifestyle changes will improve insulin resistance. Losing 5-10 percent of your body weight may not cure diabetes but it can greatly improve the condition.
