Diabetes Diet and Lifestyle Clinic, November 6th

There are two types of diabetes, but the most common is Type 2. The way it works is that your pancreas releases insulin in your body, which moves glucose (blood sugar) into your cells so you can produce energy. Type 2 diabetics have a resistance to insulin. Their cells keep demanding insulin, so their pancreas keeps making more. People with type 2 diabetes not only have too much insulin in the bloodstream, they have also developed high levels of blood sugar, a condition known as hyperglycemia.

Most people diagnosed with diabetes are overweight, but it is possible for thin people to develop the disease.
If you are diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, it's good to know that with proper attention and care, you can live a long and active life. Diabates can be man aged. It's important to monitor your blood sugar level regularly.

Celiac Screening Clinic, October 20th

Celiac disease is a problem with digesting gluten. Gluten comes from grains like wheat, barley, and rye and is found in bread, crackers and pasta. With Celiac disease, your immune system harms your small intestine when you eat these foods. This makes it hard for you to absorb nutrients that keep you healthy such as vitamins, minerals, protein, carbohydrate and fats.

Symptoms of celiac disease include

  • gas and bloating
  • changes in bowel movements
  • weight gain or loss
  • feeling tired
  • weakness

All About Health Remedy'sRx is conducting a Celiac Screening Clinic on Wednesday, October 20th starting at 11 am. There are only limited spaces available. Don't wait! Get tested! See store for details.
