    I'm and old buzzard and the last time I was home I went to play golf. They paired me up with two other old buzzards.

    As we played we got to talking about our ailments.

    First guy says I have a terrible time urinating.

    Second guy has a miserable time having a bowel movement .

    I chime in that at 7:30 every morning i urinate and have a good bowel movement. They say so what the problem?

    I said the problem is i don't wake up till 8:00.

    Body hackers is a better term.

    What I do worry is when any of my regular doctors eyeball my weight and say that I am getting a bit tubby. So I go to work on losing 20 pounds, takes a couple of months. I will never be the lightweight I was running a semi but if I ate today the way I worked that semi then I would be grossly obese. I see food as the fuel and fluids as life. Depending on which fluids are used.

    Ive always hated the sonoran desert in the American southwest. The needs of water is too much down in that way. I am much better off in a forest or near the sea. (Salt water non withstanding...)

    A sitting all day lifestyle is what does it. Need to find time to stand, walk and do some squats during the day to get your body moving in the fashion it was designed to. Sitting is totally unnatural to our biology. It squishes all of our internal organs together plus, along with the sedentary nature of sitting, creates opportunity for massive amounts of fat to collect at our core. Sitting is the new smoking....

    I disagree. It is about the fact that a HUGE segment of the drivers today is at a minimum pre-diabetic. Drivers CAN NOT allow that urine dip check to show much of any Glucose in the urine. Based on this article I am concerned this problem is not going away anytime soon either. Both active and retired drivers are fighting diabetes. In most cases, as is normal with diabetics drivers are getting some diabetic education in diabetes control. Relaying this information DOES NOT MAKE YOU A PHYSICIAN it simply makes you more knowledgeable on the subject. I spoke to my Endocrinologist at the VA hospital a while back about Diabetes and Trucking. This physician for medical privacy reasons would not get into much detail but did tell me at least once a day to maybe 4 times a week she sees a Driver holding a DOT physical.

    I have to be very careful with my blood sugar levels. This is one of the primary reasons I am wearing this VERY expensive CGM patch.
    I have to have real-time readings because rapid spikes up or down can cause me to have bad seizures, that are related to epilepsy.

    This is why I get angry when someone blows off a real concern about drivers health issues. It is also why I beg and plead with Active drivers to take care of their health. Things you can do at 25, might kill you at 50.

    I am pasting the article linked to in this spoiler.

    Diabetes Epidemic Will Hit Half of U.S. by 2020
    Researchers Say Weight Loss and Physical Activity Are Keys to Prevention of Prediabetes and Diabetes

    By Denise Mann

    Nov. 23, 2010 -- More than half of all Americans may develop diabetes or prediabetes by 2020, unless prevention strategies aimed at weight loss and increased physical activity are widely implemented, according to a new analysis.

    These efforts could in theory also save about $250 billion in health care costs in the next 10 years, suggests the analysis published by UnitedHealth Center for Health Reform & Modernization, a specialized center within UnitedHealth that focuses on health care reform issues.

    “We need a sense of urgency. There is a lot of money and human suffering at stake,”says Deneen Vojta, MD, senior vice president of the UnitedHealth Center for Health Reform and Modernization, which is based in Minneapolis. “The good news is that we know what works, and if we work together in a concerted national way, we can win.”

    Weight Loss and Exercise
    For example, programs such as the UnitedHealth Group Diabetes Prevention Program, which is done in conjunction with the Y, can help make a dent in this burgeoning epidemic. This program is based on the U.S. Diabetes Prevention Program, which shows that modest weight loss through dietary changes and increased physical activity could prevent prediabetes from progressing to diabetes.

    Prediabetes refers to blood sugar (glucose) levels between 100 to 125 milligrams per deciliter of blood (mg/dL). Ideal fasting blood levels should be less than 100 mg/dL.

    Now, Vojta says, “If I do diagnose you with prediabetes, I can say that there is a program in your community that can add years to your life.”

    "As stunning as these projections are, there is hope that we can slow and reverse this epidemic with proven interventions,”says Tom Beauregard,an executive vice president of UnitedHealth Group and the executive director of the UnitedHealth Center for Health Reform & Modernization.

    Early Diabetes Diagnosis
    Diagnosing diabetes or prediabetes earlier is a key part of the prevention strategy, Beauregard says. As it stands now, a majority of people with prediabetes and many with diabetes do not even know they have it, he says.

    “On a technical level, we can identify prediabetes and diabetes and we have proven evidence-based intervention,” he says. “What it comes down to is well-organized public awareness campaigns and incentives, and we need to reimburse community-based prevention programs.”

    Once people are diagnosed, efforts are needed to help improve management of diabetes by boosting adherence with medications, the new report suggests. Improved adherence will stave off diabetes-related complications. This will also help curb costs because the cost of caring for a person with diabetes increases exponentially in the presence of complications.
    Leonid Poretsky, MD, director of the Friedman Diabetes Institute at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York City, thinks it is time for all insurers to cover the costs of diabetes prevention programs.

    “Prevention of diabetes means weight reduction, including nutrition counseling and exercise, and most payers don’t cover these,” he says.

    “These are often covered once you have diabetes, but it is much better to prevent it from occurring in the first place,” he says. “Insurers need to cover screens for diabetes and prevention treatments widely for the entire population, not just certain programs in certain communities.”
