eMedTV on Diabetic Plaque

Just to clarify, that common enemy that all of us with diabetes face is really plaque. No really. Sticky plague that builds up in your blood vessels and causes all of those nasty complications. Watch the inaugural video from the newest online health channel eMedTV.com for the scoop:

Isn’t it telling that they chose to feature DIABETES in their launch video? Not just because November happens to be National Diabetes Awareness Month, I’m sure, but also for more self-serving reasons: Lots of eyeballs! So many diabetics, so many ePatients

Note also that eMedTV is meant to be “an extensive library of medical information” in video format, versus the also-recently-launched ICYou.com, which is shooting for the distinction of “the YouTube of healthcare.” Meaning anyone can post, share, and comment. But eMed’s got some pretty informative stuff on everything from acne to West Nile virus. Check out their growing video library HERE, including the comprehensive piece called, “What Is Diabetes?

    That’s wonderful news. I have low blood pressure and my cholesterol has always been below 160. I have an extensive family history of heart disease but they all had high blood pressure and high cholesterol. I thought I had escaped the heart trouble but two heart attacks, bypass surgery, and a stent proves otherwise. On medication my resting blood pressure is 90 over 60, my resting heart rate is 45 to 60, and my cholesterol has been 92 to 110. Do you think it makes a difference? I think not. My A1c’s have been under 5 for years so good control hasn’t been the protection I had hoped for. No doubt, diabetes is everything it’s advertised to be.

    Thank you for the web sites.

    Such a shame the police are not really there to serve and protect. they’re really there to see how many tickets they can dispense. they sometimes remind me of a gang of thugs out to degrade and humiliate people. The same thing happened to me. I had not been on insulin very long. I was driving along and suddenly my sugar dropped low, I got off the road and was glad to get help from an ambulance who happened by. The police also showed up. they were all nice and gave me the help I needed that was 15 years ago. I’ve never had a ticket in my life. and that kind of incident has never happened since. Cops should be more understanding.
