Glucose is high, pancreas releases insulin to bring it down. Glucose is low, pancreas releases glucagon to bring it up. It’s a feedback system. Diabetes is when the insulin either can’t be made, not enough can be made or the insulin doesn’t work as well as it should and therefore the glucose level stays high.

It around $100 a month plus your Part B Medicare monthly premiums. If you retire before age 65 you would have an individual plan. I suggest contacting an insurance agent and finding out what insurance and what plans are available in your state.

Comment on What is the purpose of a watery fluid in the lungs that contains a surfactant, which is a detergent-like subst? by Piet S http://www.valeriezarcone.com/endothelial-damage/what-is-the-purpose-of-a-watery-fluid-in-the-lungs-that-contains-a-surfactant-which-is-a-detergent-like-subst-3/comment-page-1#comment-1131 Fri, 30 Dec 2011 06:49:59 +0000 http://www.valeriezarcone.com/endothelial-damage/what-is-the-purpose-of-a-watery-fluid-in-the-lungs-that-contains-a-surfactant-which-is-a-detergent-like-subst-3#comment-1131 Basically it is to save energy. The surface of the lungs is expanding when you inhale and energy is needed to overcome the work done by surface tension (the fluid in the lungs wants to minimize its surface, the surface tension is the force over a length responsible for minimizing the surface). That will require very strong muscles to expand the chest if the surface tension is high. At exhaling the surface comes down and the lungs will collapse due to gravity and surface tension again until the rib cage is at its minimal volume.
So the higher the surface tension the more muscle is needed to overcome it. It can be a big problem for premature children, that don’t have a surfactant yet and weak musculature in the chest.

We *know* that uncontrolled diabetes can cause cardiovascular disease, blindness, and kidney disease/failure. Cancer is just the most controversial of all those in your list.

Comment on What good is your health insurance if you have to make me buy it? by Flower http://www.valeriezarcone.com/health/what-good-is-your-health-insurance-if-you-have-to-make-me-buy-it/comment-page-1#comment-1125 Fri, 09 Dec 2011 12:05:59 +0000 http://www.valeriezarcone.com/health/what-good-is-your-health-insurance-if-you-have-to-make-me-buy-it#comment-1125 Plenty of employed people dont have health benefits or cant afford their share of the cost.

In order to subsidize health insurance for everyone, the pool of people must include both sick and healthy people so the government can afford to subsidize everyone. Thats why it is a mandate and not optional. It is a good deal, and you get a tax credit for buying insurance which you dont get now.

The purchase of insurance by everyone is the way the planners came up with being able to cover everyone.

Reality dictates that we live in a world of scarce resources. I have unhappy news for the liberal bunch that grew up on Sesame Street and never actually moved on: There is NOT enough money to provide health care for everybody. And even if there were enough money, you could never collect it. People with the money would leave or hide it.

So what do we do with liberals who figuratively have spent their entire lives designing castles to be placed in swamps? The enormous amount of time and effort spent designing a health care bill that can never be funded was a huge waste. Liberals keep your attention focused on the bill/law and ignore any argument as to its practicality. You can’t reason with them-you HAVE to vote the crap out.

I am all for liberals helping people pay for health care. Despite unemployment figures, caring liberals can still show how much they * really * care about the uninsured by getting a side job at McDonald’s or a similar place and work part time to make money to insure an uninsured person somewhere. There are perhaps 150 million liberals in this country so only some of them would have to do this in order to get everyone insured. This answer is extremely practical and it has a 100% chance of succeeding anywhere liberals actually care about the uninsured. It is not complex, it would help the economy by making America more productive and would be constitutional.

Obviously that isn’t going to happen. Liberals only care about others with others’ money. They don’t care about reality and can’t/don’t want to do math (economics). They think it’s their place in the world to dream up stuff and the OTHER person’s job to do the hard labor. Well they are wrong.
