    Taking control: Tips for managing diabetes

    (BPT) - Ralph Mesa of Atlanta, Georgia, has been living with type 2 diabetes for more than 30 years. When his doctor first told him he had type 2 diabetes, Ralph didn’t think too much about it. He took the medication his doctor prescribed and was feeling fine. What Ralph didn’t realize is that diabetes can change over time and what he was doing was no longer enough to keep his blood sugar under control. Now Ralph has a message for other adults with diabetes: learn all you can about the condition and the things you can do to help manage your diabetes.

    Fishing for a healthy meal? Seafood is a smart choice

    (BPT) - When it comes to mealtime, are you thinking fish? You should! Fish is the premiere natural source of omega-3 fatty acids, which are not naturally produced by the body and, therefore, must come from food. If you’re an expecting or breastfeeding mom, it’s even more important to eat fish because it’s a vital staple for optimal brain and eye development in babies, as well as brain and heart health for moms. Eating two to three servings of fish each week has also been shown to have a positive effect on developing babies’ and children’s IQs. Unfortunately, many mothers avoid eating fish based on fears associated with misinformation.

One moment I was enjoying a family vacation in Mississippi, and just two days later, I was in the hospital due to shortness of breath and dizziness. A series of tests showed that I had three blocked arteries, and I would quickly need triple coronary bypass surgery to save my life.
