Prevent, Control, and Reverse Diabetes Through Diet

a-1 downey arthritis

There are many things in our diet that can cause our blood sugar to spike.  From pastas to potatoes, white rice to white bread, there are definitely alternatives to help you be smarter about the carbs intake.  For example, instead of white rice, try eating brown rice instead. It is higher in fiber and don’t spike your blood sugar level.  Another great example to control your blood sugar level is to eat whole-wheat bread over regular white bread.   Furthermore, whole-wheat options are also available for pastas as well for similar positive results.

Throughout a day, try to keep your blood sugar level consistent.  As a result, eat breakfast daily to ensure you have the energy to start off the day.  Moreover, it is a good idea to eat more frequently in smaller portion so you won’t be overly hungry at one time.  Finally, try to keep a food diary to record which food helps you lose weight and which food might be affecting your weight negatively.  If you can make smarter and healthier choices, diabetes can definitely be controlled or prevented!

Hobbies to Consider For Seniors in 2015

????????????????????????????????????????

Many seniors are lost in finding what to do with the free time they have after retiring, but ailments like arthritis is making them think twice before doing any activities.  But with good planning and some encouragements, they can have some fun times trying different things!  First and foremost, the free time allows seniors to have extended time for traveling and explore this huge world of ours.  On top of that, seniors have much more flexibility in the date they travel, so it can also lead to better deals as well.  Finding something that is you are passionate about can lead to a much more fulfilling life, so if you can find volunteer work that matches up with you passion and interest, you can make a difference in your community.  If you have knowledge in a certain field, why not take on a part time teaching position.  Not only does it give you additional income, as well as passing on the valuable experience and knowledge to the younger generations.  Speaking of younger generations, why not offer to babysit grandchildren so their parents can have some time off for themselves?  It is a great way to bond with the younger ones and the adult children.  There are much more activities that seniors can enjoy, and the suggestions here did not even scratch the surface for all the possibilities.

The experience that A-1 Home Care has accumulated over being in business for over 20 years have taught us that finding a good caregiver takes time.  That’s why we carefully interview and select the caregivers for our clients, match their skills to various needs in Alzheimer Care, Dementia Care, Cancer Care, Arthritis Care, Parkinson Care, Kidney Disease Care, After Surgery Care, Brain Injury Care, Incontinence Care, Hospice Care, and other services for seniors.  We focus our effort in all Orange County and Los Angeles County, bringing our quality service to communities such as Anaheim Hills, Fountain Valley, Villa Park, Tustin, Yorba Linda, Santa Ana, Newport Beach, Huntington Beach, Los Alamitos, and other areas.

Have you overreacted to a symptom and later found out it was nothing? Many of us have, and after fooling ourselves with such scare we might be more inclined to ignore symptoms that we are experiencing.  However, here are a few symptoms that you should never ignore.  A sudden intense headache that you feel like is the worst you have had in your life, and that peaks within seconds or minutes, could mean an aneurysm, or that a blood vessel has suddenly burst, which require emergency help immediately.  Chest pain can often mean heart attack, whether if it is mild or intense.  When combined with pain down an arm, nausea, sweating, and shortness of breath, delay could cause the muscle to be damage if it is not attended to in a timely manner.  Another symptom you shouldn’t ignore, especially for seniors and elderly folks, is unusually bleeding.  colon cancer can cause rectal bleeding, while bloody vomit can be result of stomach or esophageal cancer.   People with lung cancer can experience bloody cough.  Despite all that, some of these scenarios are the worst case scenario, and seek medical help immediately whenever the symptoms ever occur.
