Travel Safey Tips
Finding A Doctor Near You
Access Your Risk
Greetings!! Welcome to the fall newsletter. November is diabetes awareness month. Diabetes affects about 26 million Americans and is projected to grow significantly over the next decade. Of these patients, 7 million donâ€™t know they have diabetes yet and an additional 80 million are pre-diabetic. These are scary numbers! Complications from diabetes include stroke, heart attacks, eye disease and kidney failure if not treated appropriately. This month we outline the concern and some tips to help. In a similar light, we review health fruits and vegetables for a healthy diet. On some other topics we review advice on how to develop good homework and study habits. As the weather changes to winter, this is a good opportunity to remind ourselves of good safety precautions as we drive. As always, thank you for reading our newsletter and trusting Unity Healthcare and our practices with you and your families health and wellness.

ASSESS YOUR RISK OF DIABETES Did you know that 25 percent of those who have type 2 diabetes don’t even know they have it?
March 27th is American Diabetes Association Alert Day. We’d like to encourage everyone to take their Diabetes Risk Test and share it with your family and friends. It took me less than a minute! You can find the test here: http://www.diabetes.org/diabetes-basics/prevention/ diabetes-risk-test/?loc=DropDownDB-RiskTest RISK FACTORS FOR PREDIABETES AND DIABETES • Being overweight or obese can keep your body from making and using insulin properly, as well as cause high blood pressure. • Having a parent or sibling with diabetes more than doubles the risk of getting the disease. • Being of certain races, such as black, American Indian, Asian American, Pacific Islander or Hispanic. • Having had gestational diabetes or given birth to at least one baby weighing more than 9 pounds (4.1 kilograms). • Having high blood pressure measuring 140/90 millimeters of mercury (mm Hg) or higher. • Having abnormal cholesterol, with a high-density lipoprotein (HDL) or “good cholesterol” of 35 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL) or 0.9 mmol/L or lower, or triglyceride levels over 250 mg/dL (2.8 mmol/L). • Exercising infrequently — less than three times a week.
REDUCE YOUR RISK If you’re at medium to high risk for type 2 diabetes, talk with your health care provider. Although you can’t control all risk factors, early diagnosis and making healthy lifestyle changes can prevent or delay complications from diabetes — such as heart disease, stroke, blindness and death. If you’re at risk of developing diabetes in the future, reduce your risk by making changes such as the following. • Achieve and maintain a healthy weight. If you’re overweight, you can lower your blood glucose and reduce your risk of prediabetes by losing weight — even just 5 to 10 percent of your total weight. • Reduce fat and calories in your diet. Limit dietary fat to no more than 30 percent of your total calories. Include a fruit or vegetable with each meal, and eat more whole grain foods and fewer foods made of refined flours. For second helpings, choose vegetables, salad or fruit. Drink plenty of water, and limit the amount of juice and sugar-sweetened sodas that you drink. • Get regular physical activity. If you’re not currently active, talk with your health care provider about getting started on an exercise program. Your health care provider can help you find physical activities appropriate for you. Find out your risk for diabetes today and get started on a healthier lifestyle. Source: “http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/diabetes-awareness-day/MY02057

Safely Storing Fruits And Vegetables Properly storing fruits and vegetables helps maintain freshness, flavor, and nutritional value. The following storage tips will help you keep your fruits and vegetables fresher longer:
• Store potatoes and onions in a cool, dark, dry location.
• Most fruits should be stored in the refrigerator. Be careful not to bruise fruits. Rinse them thoroughly JUST BEFORE USE, not when storing them.
• Cut fruits and vegetables should be stored in covered containers in the refrigerator. Quality is usually best if you use cut produce within a day.
• Store bananas in a cool place, not in the refrigerator. • Keep un-ripened fruit at room temperature. • Vegetables (especially root vegetables) that are visibly dirty should be washed before storage. Make sure they are dry before storing.
• Keep pumpkin, carrots, and parsnips in plastic bags in the refrigerator.
• Cut produce that has been out of the refrigerator more than four hours (including preparation, transport and serving time) should be discarded. Storage times vary depending on how ripe the fruit and vegetables are and the temperature of the refrigerator. Source: http://www.healtharticlesnow.com/index.php?option=com_content&vi ew=article&id=833:safely-storing-fruits-and-vegetables-&catid=17:health-andsafety-archive&Itemid=41
• Store leafy vegetables in sealed bags or containers in the Vegetable compartment of the refrigerator. Making sure they are dry will help prevent rotting. • Do not store ripe fruits with vegetables together in the refrigerator. Ripe fruits produce a gas that can cause green vegetables to turn yellow.
Safety Precautions To Take While Traveling
It is important to use common sense when traveling. To stay safe, you should be especially cautious in (or avoid) areas where you may be more easily victimized. These include crowded subways, train stations, elevators, tourist sites, market places, festivals and crime-ridden neighborhoods.
• Learn a few phrases in the local language or have them handy in written form so that you can signal your need for police or medical help. • Make a note of emergency telephone numbers you may need: police, fire, your hotel, and the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate. • If you are confronted, don’t fight back -- give up your valuables. Safety in Your Hotel • Keep your hotel door locked at all times. Meet visitors in the lobby. • Do not leave money and other valuables in your hotel room while you are out. Use the hotel safe. • If you are out late at night, let someone know when you expect to return. • If you are alone, do not get on an elevator if there is a suspicious-looking person inside. • Read the fire safety instructions in your hotel room. Know how to report a fire, and be sure you know where the nearest fire exits and alternate exits are located. (Count the doors between your room and the nearest exit; this could be a lifesaver if you have to crawl through a smokefilled corridor.)
Travel Safety Tips
Safety on the Street • Don’t use short cuts, narrow alleys or poorly lit streets. • Try not to travel alone at night. • Avoid public demonstrations and other civil disturbances. • Keep a low profile and avoid loud conversations or arguments. • Do not discuss travel plans or other personal matters with strangers. • Avoid scam artists by being wary of strangers who approach you and offer to be your guide or sell you something at bargain prices. • Beware of pickpockets. They often have an accomplice who will jostle you, ask you for directions or the time, point to something spilled on your clothing, or distract you by creating a disturbance. • Beware of groups of vagrant children who could create a distraction to pick your pocket. • Wear the shoulder strap of your bag across your chest and walk with the bag away from the curb to avoid drive-by purse-snatchers. • Try to seem purposeful when you move about. Even if you are lost, act as if you know where you are going. Try to ask for directions only from individuals in authority. • Carry a cell phone. Make sure that the battery is charged.

Help Your Child Develop Good Homework and Study Habits Tips to help your child develop good study habits at home: • Create an environment that is conducive to doing homework. Youngsters need a permanent work space in their bedroom or another part of the home that is quiet, without distractions, and promotes study. • Schedule ample time for homework. • Establish a household rule that the TV stays off during homework time. • Supervise computer and Internet use. • Be available to answer questions and offer assistance, but never do a child’s homework. • Take steps to help alleviate eye fatigue, neck fatigue and brain fatigue while studying. It may be helpful to close the books for a few minutes, stretch, and take a break periodically when it will not be too disruptive. • If your child is struggling with a particular subject, and you aren’t able to help the child yourself, a tutor can be a good solution. Talk it over with your child’s teacher first.
• Some children need help organizing their homework. Checklists, timers, and parental supervision can help overcome homework problems.

Take Folic Acid Before You Get Pregnant Many women know that getting enough folate – called folic acid in its synthetic form – is important during pregnancy to prevent birth defects. But not everyone knows that women should take folic acid even before they become pregnant. When you get enough folate, you lower the chances that your baby will have certain birth defects of the brain and spinal cord. The birth defects happen in the first few weeks of pregnancy, though, when a woman might not know she is pregnant. Because of this, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend that women who could get pregnant take folic acid even if they do not plan to get pregnant. Folic acid must be taken every day to be effective, but it’s easily available in many multivitamins. Health experts recommend 400 micrograms of folate a day for most women. However, those who are pregnant need 600 micrograms, and breast-feeding women require 500 micrograms. It’s good to get folate from food, too. Good sources include leafy, green vegetables; fruits, especially those of the citrus variety; asparagus; beans; and peas. One cup of raw spinach has about 100 micrograms of folate, as does a half cup of Great Northern Beans. Four asparagus spears contain 85 micrograms. Many enriched-grain foods, such as cereals, breads, and flours, are fortified with folic acid. In fact, three-fourths of a cup of some cereals contains 400 micrograms. This B vitamin has been linked to many health benefits. New research shows it may help protect women from health problems such as stroke, breast cancer, and heart attack.

Choosing A Primary Care Physician - The Smart Way Choosing a new physician can be a difficult task. Asking for recommendations is a good way to start, but ultimately you will have to decide which physician is best suited to your individual needs and situation. It is important to establish a relationship with a primary care physician (PCP), especially before you ever get sick. Primary care doctors should be the first line of defense in protecting your health, but millions of Americans don’t have a PCP. Even patients who regularly visit specialists don’t always have a PCP, leaving them unprepared when the flu or an infection strikes. Everyone gets sick at some point, so selecting a PCP ahead of time means you don’t have to scramble around when you need medical care. Here are some questions and answers that can help you select a PCP who understands your particular needs. What information should I find out about the doctor? It may help to ask the doctor’s office these questions: • At which hospitals does the doctor have privileges? • How long does it take to get in to see the doctor for a routine visit and for urgently needed care? • Who covers for the doctor when the need arises? • Is the doctor board certified? (This means he or she has had training after medical school and has passed an exam to be certified as a specialist in a certain field.) What personal qualities should I look for in a doctor? Find a doctor who listens carefully, explains things clearly, anticipates your health problems and allows you to ask questions. What information should I bring to my appointment? It is important to provide your doctor with the following: • Your health history • A list of medications you’re taking • Any vitamins or supplements you take • A description of any current health problems you’re having. If you have symptoms, the doctor will want to know when they first appeared, how often • A list of questions. Ask your doctor to explain any answers you don’t understand
