Dr. Shepherd’s Monthly Health Tip!
December 2013: Diabetes
We hope everyone had a happy, healthy and blessed Thanksgiving. Everyone here at Shepherd Healthcare is privileged to have the opportunity to serve you. As the holidays are in ‘full swing’ it’s easy for most of us to let our guard down when it comes to enjoying more food than we probably need and especially indulging in all the amazing desserts surrounding us at every corner! In addition, as cold weather sets in our physical activity is normally reduced.
I’m not one of those people that can’t let my hair down from time to time and really enjoy a great meal and all the terrific sweets that generally come with it. However, none of us to should ever underestimate how the power of moderation and regular exercise can greatly benefit one’s over-all health.This month I want to address the serious problem of diabetes that’s effecting so many and offer some advice on how it can be prevented.
