About Me
Modern Medicine Saves Lives Every Day

I have had diabetes my entire life, and I am very thankful for the fact that modern medical discoveries have helped me live a happy, healthy life despite my disease. I have had to watch what I eat and take medications daily for most of my life, and while i used to feel like I was "missing out" when other children were able to eat sugary candy and I wasn't, I eventually learned that sugar-free candy tastes great. I am always keeping up on the latest diabetes research, and while researching, I have also learned about many other diseases and ailments and how they are treated and controlled. I know others are too busy to browse a bunch of medical websites, like I like to do, so I decided to start a blog that others can visit that contains information on a variety of medical topics all in one place!

    It can be a shock when a teacher or administrator from your teenager's school contacts you to say that your teen's attendance has been lacking — especially if your teen has indicated that he or she is always present in class. While discipline from the school may be forthcoming, and you may seek to provide your own disciplinary measures, you should also keep in mind that there may be a potentially concerning reason for your teen's truancy.

  • Times To Consider Having A Port Wine Stain Lightened

    6 December 2017

    When you have a child who has a port wine stain, you'll want to regularly visit a pediatrician or your family doctor so that he or she can assess this birthmark.
