Living with a Disability Magazine Marks American Diabetes Month with New Article on Healthy Living Tips for People with Diabetes Mellitus


San Antontio, TX (PRWEB) November 26, 2014

To mark American Diabetes Month which occurs every November, the Editorial Board of Living with a Disability magazine has published an important new article entitled “Healthy Living Tips for those with Diabetes Mellitus.”

The new article highlights that:

over 20 million Americans suffer from Diabetes Mellitus (DM)
nearly 80 million people are at risk of developing DM in their lifetime
someone in the US is diagnosed with DM every 17 seconds
at the current pace, an estimated 1 in 3 adults will have DM by 2050
DM kills more people each year than breast cancer and AIDS combined

With respect to DM management and maintenance, the new article recommends that those diagnosed with or at-risk of suffering from DM should:

follow their doctor’s instructions regarding medication and lifestyle, and immediately escalate any concerns
eat a nutritious diet consisting of healthy carbs, fiber-rich foods, heart-healthy fish and good fats
exercise regularly to improve blood circulation
maintain good hygiene and take particularly good care of their feet and mouth, as well as prevent bacteria build-up

“It’s our hope that this new article will help our readers with diabetes enjoy a better quality of life,” commented Living with a Disability magazine’s associate publisher Joshua C. Eyestone. “We also encourage all of our readers to spread awareness of diabetes throughout the year, and not just in November. With the right medical treatment supported by an optimal health and wellness program, people can indeed live life to the fullest!”

Indianapolis Organization Tangram Supports Students Seeking Employment this Disability Employment Awareness Month

Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) October 24, 2014

October is Disability Employment Awareness Month, and latest unemployment numbers tell us that the national unemployment rate for individuals with a disability is close to double the rate of individuals without a disability.

To Scott McGuire, a graduating senior at the University of Indianapolis with severe dyslexia, these numbers hit closer to home. McGuire is looking forward to finding a job and living on his own after graduation, but now the same disability that made school a challenge may keep him from getting being employed. Thankfully, the solution to his employment may come from the same place as his academic success.

McGuire has found help through a life coach, Megan, who works with him through Tangram, a local organization committed to supporting individuals with disabilities. Megan understands his individual goals and has helped him develop individualized plans to meet his goals and take on his future. McGuire describes Megan as someone who partners with him and helps him find strategies to be successful academically and in other areas of life.

“She’s helped me with diet, health, academics and setting goals. She helps me do want I need to have an independent and happy life,” McGuire says.

Steve O’Dore, the head of Tangram’s life coaching program, says Tangram’s program helps fill in the gaps for students with disabilities so they can be successful and independent after they’re finished with school. Tangram life coaches are available to students like Scott through a grant from the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust. The grant funded services for 5 high school students and 5 middle school students in the Indianapolis area.

McGuire knows that finding a job after graduation will not be easy, but with Megan’s help, he’s taking steps now to ensure his transition is successful.
