Om kinders te help
GESKENKIES VIR ST IDAS PRIMER: Nicolette Smith (regs) het op Woensdag 6 November vir 45 meisies van St Idas Primêr toiletware geskenk. “Dit is vir my ’n voorreg om tieners te help met toiletware want ek weet daar is nie altyd die geleentheid om te koop nie. Ek het in Februarie begin met hierdie projek en dit is ’n groot passie by my om hierdie jong kinders te help.” Saam met Nicolette is die 45 meisies van St Idas Primêr en Rico du Toit (departement hoof van St Idas Primêr).

Loose weight, curb diabetes Three-and-a-half million South Africans (about 6% of the population) suffer from diabetes and there are many more who are undiagnosed. This is according to founder and managing director of the Centre for Diabetes and Endocrinology in Johannesburg, Dr Larry Distiller. Diabetes, or sugar sickness, is a condition of the body, where sugar is not used correctly to provide energy for living and growing. It develops when the body doesn’t produce enough insulin and without insulin, your body cannot get the necessary energy it needs from food. Normally the pancreas produces insulin which carries the sugar in the blood into the cells, but with diabetes, the pancreas fails to supply enough insulin, or the insulin doesn’t work properly. There are two major types of diabetes: Type I, commonly called juvenile diabetes, and Type II, commonly called adult on-set diabetes. Both have similar symptoms but very different causes. Type I diabetes, usually diagnosed in childhood, is a disease whereby the body’s own immune system attacks and kills the cells in the pancreas which produce insulin, leaving the body without insulin and unable to regulate its blood sugar levels. Treatment usually consists of taking insulin injections, together with a special diet and controlled amounts of exercise. Type II diabetes is a disease that results when the body’s cells become resistant to insulin. In Type II diabetes, unlike in Type
Weight loss can prevent diabetes. I, insulin is still produced by the body; it just isn’t used correctly. The solutions available to lose weight, and thus decrease the risk of diabetes, are numerous. However, by using a professional, scientific and personalised eating programme that changes the way you think about food as well as the way that you eat, like the highly successful The Diet Everyone Talks About, you will be able to lose weight healthily and keep that weight off, as well as ensure that your blood sugar levels decrease.
This is what happened to Chantel van Zyl, who lost 111kg after she saw her mother suffering with obesity and diabetes. “My whole life I have been overweight. My whole family had obesity problems so everyone accepted me for what I was. “Two years ago my mom was admitted to hospital with gangrene. She suffered from hypertension as well as diabetes. The doctor attributed her condition to her weight. It was very difficult for me to see her suffering. All our family members decided there and then to do something to lead a healthier lifestyle,” says van Zyl. “After trying many diets and not succeeding, I came across The Diet Everyone Talks About and decided to give it a go. “In 18 months this programme taught me to eat the right foods for my body type and in the right combinations. My energy flowed back and my zest for life returned. The foods allowed are normal everyday foods which make it easier to shop at any supermarket . “I have lost a total of 111kg and am still going strong until I hit my ideal weight,” concludes a very proud van Zyl. If you are worried that either you or a loved one might have diabetes, or even be pre-diabetic, it is important to consult a doctor, your local clinic or your local pharmacist immediately. For more information about The Diet Everyone Talks About, and where it is offered in your area visit www.the-diet.co.za or call 016 362 4890.
Water safety focus Along with the impending festive season comes the warm summer weather when kids love nothing more than to splash around in a swimming pool or at the beach. Netcare 911 operations director, Peter Feurstein, says that tragically Netcare 911 is always called out to a large number of incidents involving child drownings or near-drownings over the summer months. The sea, rivers, swimming pools and even the home can pose a threat to the safety of small children, he says. According to Netcare 911 medical director, dr Anchen Laubscher, drownings are one of the main causes of unnatural deaths among children in South Africa. She says most drownings and near-drownings occur around the home and involve children under the age of five. “Young children are extremely vulnerable around water. Babies can drown in just a few centimetres of water,” Laubscher says. “It is therefore not only swimming pools and rivers that pose a threat to them but also baths, toilets, water buckets and basins. “One recent case involved a three-year-old toddler who had a near drowning experience in a shallow pond that was just a few centimetres deep. “His parents found him face down in the pond. Fortunately they gave him life-saving CPR and he made a full recovery. ” Laubscher advises parents to remove or safeguard any water
around the home that could pose a danger to children. ) Swimming pools and ponds should be fenced off to ensure children do not have access to them. ) They should also be covered with safety nets. ) Because young children wander off and fall into swimming pools in the blink of an eye, they should always be closely monitored. Even if they are good swimmers, children should not be allowed to swim in the sea, a dam, a river or a swimming pool unsupervised. Shalen Ramduth, head of the Netcare 911 School of Emergency and Critical Care (SECC), says it is extremely empowering to be able to intervene when a loved one is vulnerable and urges all South African parents to learn first aid, particularly CPR. In children, as in adults, when the heart has failed, CPR can keep the brain supplied with oxygen until an advanced-life-supportparamedic can take over treatment. He says the SECC provides a variety of accredited first aid and CPR training courses of various levels including CPR for family and friends. These are offered to schools, businesses, organisations, homes and any private individuals who are interested in learning first aid. For more information on the courses available, contact the Netcare 911 SECC on 011 695 9600 or visit www.netcare.co.za.
