ADW and Broward Health Specialty Care Center

March 30th, 2008 by adw

On March 25, 2008 on American Diabetes Alert day, American Diabetes Wholesale attended the health seminar at the Specialty Care Center in Fort Lauderdale, FL. There were about 100 patients who had showed up for a free blood glucose and also blood pressure readings. There was excellent lectures on diet, excercise, feet, eyes, stress, anything and everything that someone with diabetes would need to know about and how to manage.

It was a great turn out and another reason why ADW is here, and that is to help those without the resources for their everyday supplies. Majority could not afford anything at all let alone paying the high cost for their supplies. We have committed ourselves to keeping diabetes management affordable, and will continue to be there for those patients as a resource for them.

Upcoming event for American Diabetes Wholesale will be this Saturday, March 29, 2008 at Mizner Park in Boca Raton, FL for the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes.

American Diabetes Wholesale Newsletter Review: March 19, 2008

March 30th, 2008 by adw

Hello everyone! Another week has gone by, and that means that American Diabetes Wholesale has a new edition of our informative newsletter!

This issue’s main story covers something that many people use in their diets, whether they have diabetes or not – sugar substitutes. Naturally, however, this topic is a major concern to diabetics, and the article “Sugar Substitutes” covers the different types of artificial sweeteners such as saccharine, sucralose, and aspartame.

American Diabetes Wholesale’s Product Spotlight goes in tangent with the main article, and covers our Sugar Substitutes category of diabetic products. We carry many different types of artificial sweeteners, which can be used for baking, a tasty drink mix, or just to sweeten up a cup of tea or coffee in the morning. Check out a few of our selections from DiabetiSweet Original Sugar Substitute to EZ-Sweetz Liquid Sucralose Sweetener to our new Stevita Spoonable Stevia Sweetener.

This week’s recipe is one for those who love to cook – Angela Tustin’s Smoked Duck and Candied Ginger Salad. It requires a bit more prep and cooking time compared to some of our earlier featured recipes, but the results will knock your socks off!

Bowling and Blogging Friday 3

March 30th, 2008 by Chris S

Getting back to my bowling and blogging Friday’s, I believe this is number 3. I have missed 2 out of the last 4 Friday’s because I was out of town, but yet I still have to pay for my bowling. So last night, I ate chinese food for lunch and dinner and tested my sugar at midnight and it was 300, what a surprise. I corrected and woke up in the morning and my level was at 212, a little better then the last few days. I guess I just have to start waking up in the middle of the night again and test my sugar to see where the highs are starting or coming from.

Tomorrow is the local JDRF walk and after that, a day of nothing but school work. It has been beautiful all week long and then the weekend comes and it is rainy all weekend, isn’t that great? I don’t mind this weekend, because like I said I have a lot of schoolwork that I have to do.

Michigan State plays tonight, hopefully Monday’s blog title will read “Michigan State Spartans to the Final Four!”

Still Morning Highs and High Stress

March 30th, 2008 by Chris S

I just have one question, how do you all find time to blog everyday? I know I’m not the only one who is extremely busy and doesn’t even have time to eat some days, but how do you manage to do it. I try to because it does calm the nerves and relieves the stress in the middle of the day. I’ve been a little worried about my blood sugar levels throughout the night because I just keep waking up with like 300 levels. I have tried so many damn things. Eating Taco Bell last night I know didn’t help.

Also, yesterday I was so busy at work that I totally forgot to eat lunch. I ate at 8:30, testing throughout the day. At about noon my level was 123, and then I didn’t test again until about 5, and without eating all day, my sugar went up to 230. I don’t know why my sugar goes up when I don’t eat, I always expect it to go the opposite way.

Our local JDRF walk is coming up this Saturday. It’s at the beautiful Mizner Park in Boca Raton, FL. If you’re in the area, please come out and join us, it should be fun! Please, you can support the fight for the cure!

Filled out Graduation Paperwork

March 30th, 2008 by Chris S

So yesterday I met with my advisor and filled out the paperwork for graduation. I only have one more class left in the summer that I must take in order to graduate. Which my advisor said I would probably need an A to make my chances easier to get into grad school. Depending on my GMAT scores, if I dont’ get an A I can still get in.

I can’t imagine what my sugar levels are going to be like when I am studying for the GMAT. Also, the day of the GMAT. They will probably go really low, because they always do when I get nervous. I doubt other students would like me to pull out a meter and test myself in the middle of one of the most important tests that they have ever taken in their life.

I will be going back up to Orlando for another 1 day trip to see my nieces who are going to DisneyWorld for the very first time. I am very, very excited. Next week is the big A1C test though, so starting to get a little nervous for that.

Started Workout Yesterday

March 19th, 2008 by Chris S

I started working out again yesterday and attempting to eat better again. I did not even want to get out of bed. I was so sore it wasn’t even funny. Usually I don’t work on Tuesday’s because I have school during the day, but since we are on “spring break” I had to work. That is why I put spring break in quotes because I am still up at 7 a.m. every morning to go to work. I just want to go to the pool and relax and not worry about doing homework over spring break, which I have been doing all weekend and last night.

I woke up this morning and my blood sugar was 77, I tested again at around 10:00 and it was at around 100, then I just tested again and it was 140. I did not eat anything in the morning, and it still went up like that.

Well, I’ve put down 54 oz. of water so far today, and its not even noon. I will probably double that by the end of the day. I WILL lose weight this time, and keep it off. Well time to get back to work!
