The Blue Distinction Centers for Specialty Care® program is a national designation awarded to medical facilities that have demonstrated expertise in delivering quality specialty care – which expanded recently to include more robust quality measures focused on improved patient health and safety, as well as new cost-efficiency measures. Since 2006, consumers, medical providers and employers have relied on the Blue Distinction program to identify hospitals delivering quality care in Bariatric Surgery, Cardiac Care, Complex and Rare Cancers, Knee and Hip Replacements, Spine Surgery, and Transplants. The selection criteria used to evaluate facilities were developed with input from the medical community and include general quality and safety metrics plus program specific metrics.  Saint Joseph Hospital and Saint Joseph East are

Baby Belly announces third annual Beautiful Baby Belly Contest

Hamburg Journal8 9

To All Our Valued Customers, Readers & Friends, The first mention of the word golf, or gouf, was documented in 1457 in Scotland. King James II of Scotland prohibited the playing of golf, as he wanted his people to focus on archery, a more useful skill in a time of war. While the game of golf was wildly popular in Scotland from the 17th century and on, it didn’t gain momentum in other countries for another 200 years. The first permanent golf club in North America, Canada’s Royal Montreal Club, was founded in 1873. St. Andrews, one of the oldest golf clubs in the United States, was established as a 3-hole layout in 1888 in Yonkers, New York. During the next few years numerous 6-, 8-, 9- and 12-hole courses were opened in the eastern United States. The first 18-hole golf course in America, the Chicago Golf Club, was founded near Wheaton, Illinois, in 1893. From there, the game’s popularity spread to numerous countries around the world. There are more than 29 million golfers in the U.S. today, according to the National Golf Foundation ( and US Census as of 7/12).

The Golf Exchange named to America’s Top Clubfitters list The Golf Exchange currently operates three retail locations in Kentucky and Ohio as well as an ecommerce website located at Since opening its first location in 2006, The Golf Exchange has run its business with a simple philosophy that involves putting their customers first. “We truly are customer focused,” says owner and founder Jason Fryia. “It’s not just something we talk about every day, it’s actually all we talk about. When I set out to open a retail golf store I wanted to create the type of store that I’d want to buy from and we’ve been able to do just that.” Known for more than just a comfortable place to shop, the company has quickly shown its ability to think “outside the box” and it has surfaced with events such as their annual free outdoor demo days and in-store game improvement seminars.

Among the upgrades were an expansion and remodel of the Florence store, integration of Trackman, and an increased product selection. These efforts were recognized when the

You’ll now find both of the company’s Greater Cincinnati locations on the 2013 list being announced this month. Now, with its third store in Lexington, Golf Exchange has built its brand with a customer friendly atmosphere, knowledgeable staff, and a commitment to helping Kentucky and Ohio

In Kentucky, about 59 percent of adults have been tested for diabetes in the past three years. Of those, 7 percent or about 233,000 Kentuckians have been diagnosed as having prediabetes. If you have prediabetes, you are 5 to15 times more likely to develop type 2 diabetes than people with normal blood glucose (blood sugar) levels. However, type 2 diabetes can be prevented or delayed with a healthy lifestyle, as evidenced through the National DPP. National DPP helps those at high risk for developing type 2 diabetes adopt and maintain a healthy lifestyle by eating right, increasing physical activity and losing a modest amount of weight. In a classroom setting, a trained lifestyle coach facilitates a small group of participants in learning about behavior changes over 16 one-hour sessions. Topics include healthier eating, getting started with physical activity, overcoming stress, staying motivated and more. The group helps to motivate and encourage each other. After the initial 16-

To participate in the National DPP, a person must be overweight and have prediabetes or be at high risk.

• Fasting plasma glucose between 100-125 mg/d • A1c between 5.7% and 6.4% • 2-hour plasma glucose between 140 to 199 mg/dl In addition, a combination of risk factors such as family history, being overweight or obese, gestational diabetes and inactivity may also put a person at risk and therefore make them eligible for the National DPP. To register for the National DPP or learn more about the program, call Dana Graves at 859.313.2393 or visit About KentuckyOne Health KentuckyOne Health was formed when two major Kentucky health care organizations came together in early 2012. KentuckyOne Health combines the Jewish and Catholic heritages of the two former systems – Jewish Hospital & St. Mary’s HealthCare and Saint Joseph Health System.

Ballet, children’s theater directors swap Bluegrass Youth Ballet (BYB) presents The Little Mermaid at the Lexington Opera House on May 3 at 7 pm and May 4 at 2 pm. This ballet is based on the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale, with a special twist on the ending. It is created and directed by Adalhi Aranda Corn, and is colorful, magical, and full of special effects. It includes a bilingual narration, making it a very familyfriendly performance. A special guest appearance by Larry and Vivian Snipes, directors of the Lexington Children’s Theatre, as the king and queen, has Bluegrass Youth Ballet dancers and faculty members very excited! Adalhi Aranda Corn feels very honored to have Larry and Vivian participating in her newly created ballet. Corn decided to invite them to participate after she accepted the invitation to be part of LCT’s Celebrity Curtain Call event on April 27 at the Lexington Children’s Theatre. This is a unique artistic collaboration

between two Lexington arts organizations focused on youth. The directors of each organization will be volunteering their time to each others’ organizations.

to venture into fairyland with Once Upon A Time! Guests will be serenaded by singing waiters - all LCT interns - while enjoying delicious treats provided by O’Charley’s.

The Little Mermaid features 130 students from Bluegrass Youth Ballet. It is something a little different from past Bluegrass Youth Ballet performances, as the music is more modern, and there is a heavy reliance on props to portray the different types of sea creatures in the story.

The evening will include one-of-a-kind silent and live auction packages, a tasting of Blanton’s Bourbon, and one of the most entertaining shows in town as their celebrity cast performs scenes from favorite children’s plays!

With an ending that is different from the Disney story, and changed from Hans Christian Andersen’s dark ending, the performance will provide audience members with the classic “happily ever after” feeling that most fairy tales elicit. Bluegrass Youth Ballet is a non-profit organization, whose mission is to enhance lives by providing dance education in a positive environment for all youth through high quality training, innovative performances,

and cultural experiences. In the 2013-2014 season, BYB hopes to launch a new outreach program focusing on the Latino Community in Lexington. BYB has a longstanding relationship with the Latino Community, so The Little Mermaid performance includes a narration in both English and Spanish.

Corn will join a cast including Miss Kentucky 2012 Jessica Casebolt, David & Lisa Adkins, Fifth Third Bank City President Mike Ash, and Rotary Club Executive Director Peggy Trafton just to name a few.

Non-Surgical Medical Weight Loss

eruse the aisles in any grocery or health food store and you’ll more than likely come across a number of products that contain probiotics and promote the importance of these organisms. But what exactly are probiotics and what are the benefits?

• Vaginal yeast infections and urinary tract infections • Irritable bowel syndrome • Certain intestinal infections • Eczema in children • Severity of colds and flu

“GOOD” BACTERIA Probiotics are live microorganisms, such as bacteria or yeast, that are believed to improve health by maintaining the healthy balance of organisms or “healthy” bacteria in the colon (large intestine). These bacteria are necessary for the final stage of digestion.

PROBIOTIC PRODUCTS When it comes to products that contain probiotics, consumers are probably most familiar with lactobacillus acidophilus, which is contained in live culture yogurt. There are also a number of capsules and powders available as well.

The digestive system is home to more than 500 different bacterial species which help keep intestinal linings healthy and assist in breaking down food. These “good” organisms are also believed to help regulate healthy immune response. When the balance of friendly bacteria in the intestines becomes disturbed, researchers believe that some digestive disorders result.

Other foods that claim to provide probiotics are cereal, juice, frozen yogurt, granola, candy bars, and cookies. While they may contain probiotics, there is no guarantee that they contain the amount or in the form that is necessary to get the required health benefits.

TREATMENT AND PREVENTION Common causes of the bacteria population decreasing include the use of antibiotics, the occurrence of an infection, or acute diarrhea. Even the antibiotics that are used in the production of non-organic meats can bring about a decrease in the numbers of bacteria present. Disruptions can also be caused by stress, disease, poor nutrition, toxins, and medications (such as antibiotics), immunosuppressants, and gastric acid inhibitors, resulting in intestinal and systemic health disturbances. Although more research is needed, there’s also encouraging evidence that probiotics may also help treat and prevent the following:

Good quality probiotic products contain live cultures of the friendly bacteria, which are temperature sensitive. Therefore, refrigeration is required for storage to maintain the integrity of the cultures. However, they will not lose their potency if maintained at room temperature for a week or two at a time. Rule of thumb: if an individual is personally comfortable at room temperature, then the probiotics should maintain their full potency at this same temperature. It is suggested that a supply can be removed from the refrigerated stock bottle and put into a smaller container for use away from the refrigerator (date the bottle for tracking). Pour the desired number of capsules into the bottle cap so that any extra can be put back into the “home” bottle without handling to avoid introducing moisture present on the

hands into the product. When using powdered probiotics, always use a clean, dry spoon to measure. Use cold, room temperature, or slightly warm food or beverage for consumption within a short period of time. For both capsules and powder, avoid mixing the probiotics with hot foods or liquids, as high temperatures will kill the microorganisms. SIDE EFFECTS While some studies have shown many health benefits of probiotics and that the side effects, if any, tend to be mild and digestive (i.e. gas or bloating), more research still needs to be done to be sure that they are safe and effective as a supplement and in foods. This is especially true for children, pregnant women, elderly people, and people with compromised immune systems. Always speak with your doctor before taking any supplement under these circumstances. If you would like more information about supplements and healthy ways to develop your personal nutritional plan to successfully help you lose extra pounds before the summer, call Medical Bariatrics of Lexington at 859-263-SLIM (7546). MBL is the home of Lexington’s only boardcertified, non-surgical bariatricians. Our bariatricians will meet with you at every visit and will modify your weight loss plan to meet your specific needs.
