Youth Sports Safety Month Tips for Teenagers Beginning a Fitness Regimen


Austin, Texas (PRWEB) April 14, 2015

The average teenager’s schedule is filled by juggling school, work, post-high school plans, family life, dating, friends and studying. It doesn’t leave much time for physical fitness, but since one out of three kids in the United States is considered overweight or obese, health and wellness of teens is a topic that can’t be ignored. Not only will participating in fitness activities help teens maintain a healthy weight, it also combats stress and depression, boosts energy levels and builds confidence.

But getting teens on board the fitness train is only the first step – injury prevention education and preparation are also critical. According to the National Federation of State High School Associations, more than 7.3 million high school students annually partake in physical fitness by participating in organized sports. And since, according to the Centers for Disease Control, high school athletics account for more than 2 million injuries annually, preventing traumatic injuries should be top of mind for all parents and active teens.

During April’s “Youth Sports Safety Month,” the Austin sports medicine team at Medicine in Motion has identified five essential habits that should be adopted by teenagers who are beginning to pursue a physically fit lifestyle:

1. Start small. All worthy accomplishments take time to achieve, and so does physical fitness. When teenagers begin, they shouldn’t expect massive results to happen overnight. Steady marked improvements are normal, however, when teens set reasonable goals and stick to their workout schedules. Setting smaller goals will allow participants to regularly meet and celebrate their achievements, reducing the likelihood of discouragement when larger goals aren’t rapidly attained.

2. Eat healthy. A lot of people, young and old, think that exercise is free pass to eat whatever they please. The most physically fit people know, however, that fitness is a whole body experience, including food consumption. People who start healthy eating habits in their teens are more likely to maintain those habits when they’re older, giving them a life-long fitness advantage. A few suggestions include: eat a daily healthy breakfast, cut down on processed foods, enjoy an endless amount of raw vegetables, consume lean proteins, and eat smaller meals five to six times per day.

3. Hydrate properly. The human body is, on average, made up of over 50% water. It’s an essential ingredient under normal circumstances, but when exercise and increased perspiration is involved, hydrating is even more crucial. Not only should a person drink water throughout their regular day, they should also stay reasonably hydrated during their workout. Remember that when thirst occurs, a person is already dehydrated, so keep a glass or bottle of water handy at all times.

4. Don’t skip on sleep. Teen bodies are still in flux, growing and changing – this requires a lot of sleep. When adding exercise into the mix, the body needs even more rest so it can properly repair and rebuild muscles. Teenagers should strive for at least eight hours of quality sleep every night.

5. Partner up. It’s easy to get discouraged and overwhelmed when tackling a new challenge like physical fitness, so find a friend, classmate or family member to join in the activity. Not only does the buddy system make the routines more enjoyable, partners have the advantage of being able to assist one another during difficult exercises and help each other maintain proper form to avoid injury.

Medicine in Motion (MIM) specializes in providing top quality sports medicine in Austin, Texas, for athletic individuals of all ages and levels. The staff at MIM believes active bodies are healthy bodies, therefore it is the office’s goal to keep patients energetic and fit. To that end, MIM provides treatment of injuries and illnesses, including the use of physical rehabilitation; promotes healthy living with personal training and nutrition coaching; and offers comprehensive sports medicine evaluations to optimize health, activity level and sports performance.

USO to Make a Million Moments in May: Military Appreciation Month


Arlington, VA (PRWEB) May 01, 2015

The USO makes 30,000 moments every day for our nation’s troops and their families worldwide, striving to be always by their side from the moment they join the service, throughout their military journey and as they transition back into their civilian communities. In honor of National Military Appreciation Month, the USO is rallying Americans to help make “A Million Moments in May” as part of the USO’s national Every Moment Counts campaign. The month-long celebration will include hundreds of activities and events at USO locations across the globe, including participation from an impressive lineup of celebrities, corporate and program partners. In addition, the USO is calling on Americans to get involved by visiting USOmoments.org to find out how to make and share #USOmoments and pledge their support for our troops and their families.

“The Every Moment Counts campaign has been widely embraced by our USO centers, donors, corporate partners and entertainers since its launch in 2013,” said Alan Reyes, USO Senior Vice President of Operations. “It serves as an important gateway to engage troops, the general public and our partners on behalf of our mission. We look forward to making a million moments this May and every month for our troops and families who sacrifice so much.”

The USO and Sesame Street will also be making moments for military kids and will debut a brand new 30-minute character performance centered on military-to-civilian transition, while simultaneously running their ever popular hit “Katie is Moving to a New Base.” Their newest installment, “Katie’s Family Transitions to Civilian Life,” will feature new songs, choreography and messages of support. Both shows will run as part of the 2015 Sesame Street/USO Experience for Military Families, which is scheduled to perform more than 100 shows at 45 military bases in nine countries starting May 7.

In addition to the Muppets taking the stage this month, the USO and country music will be working together in celebration of the Grand Ole Opry’s 90th Anniversary. Cause for Applause, the Opry’s nine-month anniversary celebration of causes close to country music’s heart, has selected the USO and MusiCorps to “Salute the Troops” by creating special moments during shows, honoring troops, and raising funds in May. Hunter Hayes, USO tour veteran will take the stage on May 9 at the Opry, prior to his Italy USO tour later in the month. On May 19, the Opry will salute the troops during a special show including USO tour veterans Kellie Pickler, Trace Adkins, Craig Morgan, and more. The Opry’s promo code SALUTE will benefit the USO and MusiCorps throughout the month of May. Visit http://www.Opry.com/USO to learn more about this partnership.

For the women who serve and support our military, the USO will host two very special tailored events for females. The first is on May 16 for military moms-to-be, USO/What to Expect Presents: Special Delivery in Phoenix, AZ. In collaboration with best-selling author Heidi Murkoff, the USO will host a baby shower, play shower games and have a Q&A with Murkoff. Later in the month, the USO will bring Operation: That’s My Dress to servicewomen and military spouses in New York City during Fleet Week on May 24. This edition of Operation: That’s My Dress will offer free dresses for evening and formal occasions for the special events in their lives.

For our troops in transition and caregivers, the USO will also support the Navy’s fifth annual Wounded Warrior and Veteran Hiring and Support Conference in San Antonio, TX on May 19 and 20. As part of the two day experience, Texas area transitioning troops, veterans and their spouses will network with some of today’s top employers – employers with active positions to recruit and fill and who understand the value of hiring those who have served. With the help of state-of-the-art technology, powered by Futures Inc., the USO and the Department of the Navy are able to pre-match jobseekers and employers and connect qualified candidates with the companies and positions that best fit their military training. On May 27 and 28, the USO Caregiver Seminar at Fort Leonard Wood, MO will focus on giving back to those who provide comfort and care to wounded, ill and injured troops. Designed to provide a much-needed break for caregivers, the daylong seminar will connect caregivers with peers in their community, provide them with tips on managing the stresses of caring for their loved one, as well as focus on the importance of maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle and taking time to take care of themselves.

Taking the celebration to our nation’s capital, the USO will once again host its bi-annual Service Project event on Capitol Hill on May 20 to express America´s gratitude to those who currently serve. Enlisting the support from members of Congress, the USO will work to assemble 1,500 healthy snack packs for service members and their families. Generously donated by Harris Teeter, each pack will include such items as mixed nuts, oatmeal, dried fruit and low-fat popcorn, among other nutritional items. Once assembled, the packs will be distributed to the USO Warrior and Family Centers at Fort Belvoir and Naval Service Activity Bethesda – the home of Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.

Closing out the month, The Coca-Cola Company will honor our military heroes at the 56th running of the legendary Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway during Memorial Day weekend. The event involves more than 10,000 troops the entire race weekend. Through Coca-Cola’s sponsorship, this will be the fifth straight year that the USO has helped select the Grand Marshal for the race and pay tribute to our troops. This year’s Grand Marshal is Dawn Seif, the wife of Marine Staff Sergeant, Andrew Seif, who was killed during a training exercise on March 10, 2015. Staff Sgt. Seif was a decorated Marine who was awarded the 2013 USO Marine of the Year and most recently the Silver Star.

For more details on Every Moment Counts partners and promotions throughout May please visit uso.org/corporate-partners.

Every Moment Counts is a national campaign to rally Americans to honor and create moments that matter for our troops and their families. By clearly communicating the significance of these moments, and humanizing their impact on families, the USO can help shift the civilian perspective on military service and inspire Americans to help show their gratitude to our troops and their families. For more information on Every Moment Counts, please visit USOmoments.org or join the conversation on Facebook or Twitter using #USOmoments.

Motorcycle Helmet Laws App Updated For Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month


(PRWEB) May 01, 2015

The month of May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month. Bikers in cold weather states are itching to take to the roads once again for travel and excitement on the roads and highways throughout the United States. Campaigns to encourage motorists to exercise safe driving practices for the protection of bikers are underway in a number of states, as well as from national motorcycle organizations.

Motorcycle helmet laws vary on a state by state basis. Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. a law firm specializing in motorcycle accident cases, created a free Motorcycle Helmet App to provide information on helmet to bikers riding their motorcycles across the United States, Canada, Europe, and Australia. The App is available for the iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, and Android.

Michigan recently joined 27 other states that allow freedom of choice by the rider if the rider meets certain specifications (i.e., age, medical insurance, instructional permit, safety course, etc.). Nineteen states have universal helmet laws for all operators, and three states (Illinois, Iowa and New Hampshire) do not have a motorcycle helmet law.

Several states have bills and proposals to change the helmet law restrictions and requirements.

In Missouri, a proposed bill has moved to the State Senate which would make helmets optional for motorcyclists 21 years of age or older who have at least $ 50,000.00 of personal medical insurance.

In Tennessee, a proposed bill was passed out of the State Senate Transportation Committee and into the State Senate Finance, Ways and Means Committee which would make helmets optional for motorcyclists 21 or older who don’t have insurance through TennCare (the State’s Medicaid program).

In Nebraska, an effort was made to advance legislation which would have allowed riders of at least 21 years of age and wearing eye protection, the choice to ride without a helmet. However, the proposed bill did not receive enough support from the legislature to allow it to go to a vote.

In North Carolina, a bill has been proposed which would allow motorcyclists the option to ride without a helmet if they were at least 21 years of age, have been licensed to operate a motorcycle for at least one year, and carry at least $ 10,000.00 of insurance for medical benefits if involved in a motorcycle accident. The bill is set to be heard by various legislative committees.

In Delaware, motorcyclists that are over 19 years of age may ride without a helmet on their head, but must have a helmet in their “possession.” Currently, lawmakers have introduced proposed legislation which would mandate motorcyclists to wear helmets on their heads. The proposed legislation is set to appear before a legislative committee.

“Our Helmet Laws App is the best way for motorcyclists to know the laws in each state as they ride throughout the United States and in other countries.,” says Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. Managing Attorney Lawrence Buckfire. “Bikers no longer need to do an internet search every time they plan a trip or ride across state lines.”

In addition to the helmet laws, the App has other features including:

GPS Bike Finder allows users to place a GPS pin for their bike’s location and set a time for when the user needs to return. This feature also allows you to quickly and easily email your current location to your friends.
Submit images of cool helmets and see your images in the cool helmet gallery.
Utilize the accident checklist – what to do after a motorcycle accident.
Take and save photographs of motorcycle damage and accident scene.
To download the free app, just go to iTunes or Google Play Store and search for “Motorcycle Helmet Laws” or visit http://bit.ly/1GGe9Ho

About Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C.

The personal injury attorneys at Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. are nationally recognized as top legal experts in motorcycle accident injury cases. They are also members of ABATE and frequently speak to bikers and motorcycle clubs on important insurance issues affecting Michigan bikers.

Beach Living in Panama for Just $1,000 a Month in an Up-and-Coming Haven InternationalLiving.com


Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) May 12, 2015

The town of Las Tablas on Panama’s Pacific Coast, is renowned for everything from colorful Carnival celebrations to artisanal textiles, pottery, and leatherwork. And beaches. Life in this sunny region of Panama is good , say the expats who, in increasing numbers, have begun to settle there.

“Las Tablas is graced with more sunny days and less humidity than any other part of the country,” says InternationalLiving.com Panama editor Jessica Ramesch. “And the cost of living is the lowest in Panama. Here, a couple can easily live on $ 1,000 a month, including rent.”

Originally from St. Louis, expats Joyclyn and Armand Brodeur came to Las Tablas in August 2014 to test-drive their Panama retirement.

“The couple yearned for a tropical, beach lifestyle,” Ramesch reports. “At the same time, they wanted to choose a place where it was possible to live on a Social Security check.”

“Las Tablas fits the bill,” they say, citing the excellent infrastructure and affordable healthcare.

The Brodeurs chose Las Tablas so they could live well on little, without sacrificing the good things in life. They go to the local expat hangout, Ponchalo’s, several times a week. The cost averages $ 20 total, including beverages. “Recently we had a to-die-for filet mignon for $ 6 at a place around the corner,” they report. Utilities are also inexpensive and they rent their small home for $ 200 a month.

“The Brodeurs are most enthusiastic about the quality and affordability of the healthcare, however. Both have been to a local dentist and were impressed with the offices, equipment, and thorough manner,” says Ramesch.

With more money in their pockets and no shortage of time on their hands, the two have been able to fully immerse themselves in the culture of their new home.

Attending a recent festival in rural Panama, Joyclyn said, “I saw a bull run, and it was fascinating.” At this festival, there were oxcarts painted in bright primary colors, local boys in traditional garb, and girls in richly embroidered polleras—Panama’s much-admired national dress worn for traditional events.

When they’re not dancing and socializing, the couple enjoys their laid-back lifestyle in Las Tablas.

“The day starts with Panamanian coffee—usually on the front porch. We have a papaya tree in the backyard and have fresh papaya regularly for breakfast,” Armand reports. “It’s a simple, effortless lifestyle…though the nearby beaches do make it sound a bit glamorous.”

The Brodeurs do most of their traveling by foot, as many of the locals do. And all the walking has had an unintended effect. “We have dropped an incredible amount of weight,” says Armand. “And we’re not even eating as healthy as we ought to.”

National Nutrition Month


Austin, Texas (PRWEB) March 05, 2015

March is National Nutrition Month®, an annual nutrition education and information campaign sponsored by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. The 2015 theme is “Bite into a Healthy Lifestyle,” which promotes the consumption of fewer calories, informed food decisions, and daily exercise for achieving and maintaining a healthy weight, reducing risks of chronic diseases and promoting overall wellness.

Whether a person is new to physical fitness activities or a pro, nutrition can seem complicated. Many nutritionists create intense and detailed food regimens for their clients, but a solid nutrition program can be simple and still very beneficial. For those wanting the most from a diet and fitness routine, the following tips may help:

1.    Daily balanced diet. For consistent performance at the gym or with a sport, the body needs a regular supply of quality energy for the muscles. A few daily essentials for meeting the body’s needs include: a balanced breakfast; carbohydrates for fuel; and proteins and fats appropriate for a person’s individual body-type and fitness goals.

2.    Day of the workout. For those tackling a workout first thing in the morning, be sure to have a light breakfast like fruit, toast, and/or an egg. For those who workout in the evenings, have a lunch that easily digestible but includes complex carbs. Pasta, fruits, vegetables or a salad with lean meat (chicken or fish) are good examples.

3.    Immediately prior to workout. About 30 minutes before an intense workout, eat a light to moderate snack and drink some water. The amount of food a person should ingest depends on the length and intensity of their upcoming workout. Longer, harder activities may require the individual to eat an energy bar or large banana.

4.    During workout. Necessary hydration varies from person to person, but a good rule of thumb is to intake 8 to 10 fl oz of water every 15 minutes while exercising. For those working out longer than 90 minutes, carbohydrates will likely need to be replenished as well, making a sports drink more of an ideal choice.

5.    Post-workout hydration. After a workout, water needs to be replaced in the body according to how much a person has sweated. The more perspiration, the more hydration required. To be absolutely precise, check body weight before and after the physical activity. For every pound decrease, a person should drink about 3 cups of water.

6.    Post-workout food. Glycogen stores should be replenished within two hours after an intense workout. Research shows that a 4-to-1 ratio of carbs to proteins is the ideal post-workout nutrition combination. The nourishment can come in the form of solid food, a liquid shake, or a combination of the two.

Center for Primary Care Celebrates American Heart Month

Evans, GA (PRWEB) February 27, 2015

In honor of American Heart Month in February, Dr. Edwin Scott, from the Center for Primary Care (CPC) South office, is offering tips on how to improve heart health.

Heart disease may be a leading cause of death, but that doesn’t mean people have to accept it as their fate. Although one may lack the power to change some risk factors — such as family history, sex or age — there are some key heart disease prevention steps to take.

Dr. Scott has six helpful tips to improve heart health and prevent heart disease:

1. Don’t smoke or use tobacco

Smoking or using tobacco of any kind is one of the most significant risk factors for developing heart disease. Chemicals in tobacco can damage the heart and blood vessels, leading to narrowing of the arteries (atherosclerosis). The good news, though, is that when one quits smoking, one’s risk of heart disease drops almost to that of a nonsmoker in about five years. No matter how long or how much someone has smoked, they will start reaping rewards as soon as they quit.

2. Exercise for 30 minutes on most days of the week

Getting some regular, daily exercise can reduce the risk of fatal heart disease. When physical activity is combined with other lifestyle measures, such as maintaining a healthy weight, the payoff is even greater. Try getting at least 30 to 60 minutes of moderately intense physical activity most days of the week. It’s not necessary to exercise strenuously to achieve benefits, but there are bigger benefits to increasing the intensity, duration and frequency of workouts.

3. Eat a heart-healthy diet

Eating a healthy diet can reduce the risk of heart disease. A diet rich in fruits, vegetables and whole grains can help protect the heart. Beans, other low-fat sources of protein and certain types of fish also can reduce the risk of heart disease. Limiting certain fats is also important. Heart-healthy eating isn’t all about cutting back, though. Healthy fats from plant-based sources, such as avocado, nuts, olives and olive oil, help the heart by lowering the bad type of cholesterol. Most people need to add more fruits and vegetables to their diet — with a goal of five to 10 servings a day. Eating that many fruits and vegetables can not only help prevent heart disease but may also help prevent cancer and improve diabetes. Eating several servings a week of certain fish, such as salmon and mackerel, may decrease the risk of heart attack.

4. Maintain a healthy weight

Being overweight, especially carrying excess weight around one’s middle, ups the risk of heart disease. Excess weight can lead to conditions that increase the chances of heart disease — high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes. Even a small weight loss can be beneficial. Reducing weight by just 5 to 10 percent can help decrease blood pressure, lower blood cholesterol level and reduce the risk of diabetes.

5. Get enough quality sleep

Sleep deprivation can do more than leave one yawning throughout the day; it can harm one’s health. People who don’t get enough sleep have a higher risk of obesity, high blood pressure, heart attack, diabetes and depression. Most adults need seven to nine hours of sleep each night. Those who wake up without their alarm clock and feel refreshed are getting enough sleep. But, those who are constantly reaching for the snooze button and struggling to get out of bed may need more sleep each night.

6. Get regular health screenings

High blood pressure and high cholesterol can damage the heart and blood vessels. But without testing for them, there’s no way to know whether a patient has these conditions. Regular screening can tell patients what their numbers are and whether they need to take action.


    Blood pressure: Regular blood pressure screenings usually start in childhood. Adults should have their blood pressure checked at least every two years. Optimal blood pressure is less than 120/80 millimeters of mercury.

    Cholesterol levels: Adults should have their cholesterol measured at least once every five years starting at age 20 if they have risk factors for heart disease, such as obesity or high blood pressure. Those who are healthy can start having their cholesterol screened at age 35 for men and 45 for women. Some children may need their blood cholesterol tested if they have a strong family history of heart disease.

    Diabetes screening: Since diabetes is a risk factor for developing heart disease, some may want to consider being screened for diabetes. Patients should talk to their doctor about when they should have a fasting blood sugar test to check for diabetes. Depending on certain risk factors, such as being overweight or having a family history of diabetes, the doctor may recommend early screening for diabetes. For those who have a normal weight and don’t have other risk factors for type 2 diabetes, the American Diabetes Association recommends starting screening at age 45, and then retesting every three years.

New Year’s Fitness Resolutions Just Got Easier: Fit Body Boot Camp Announces Record Sales for December, the Slowest Month of the Year


Chino Hills, Calif. (PRWEB) January 08, 2015

In perhaps one of the most newsworthy statements of the young 2015, Bedros Keuilian wants to let American’s know they can indeed maintain and accomplish any fitness goals set for the coming year. While such ambitious resolutions are often regarded as short-lived wishful thinking, numerous new Fit Body Boot Camp locations should make achieving these goals much easier.

The popular fitness brand is the nation’s fastest growing indoor fitness boot camp franchise with hundreds of locations worldwide and new locations opening each month.

And according to its founder and CEO, there are numerous new locations scheduled to open in the first months of 2015. With record breaking franchise sales for December, new locations around the country will be made available to many Americans and their resolutions.

But it isn’t just Keuilian who’s getting excited about the exercise brand. The analysts over at Entrepreneur Magazine recently released their list of The 10 Types of Franchises to Watch in 2015, and featured among the fitness franchise category was Fit Body Boot Camp.

Yet the growing popularity among business insiders and investors is merely a reaction to the fitness company’s popularity among consumers and its ability to produce noticeable results.

“That’s why we call it ‘The Unstoppable Fitness Formula,’” says Keuilian, “we’ve carefully developed this powerful fitness system that combines innovative and constantly changing workouts, personal attention from certified fitness instructors and personal trainers, and careful nutritional guidance prepared by licensed health professionals.

“It’s exactly this system that allows our clients to achieve such impressive results and it’s what is going to allow anyone the ability to achieve, maintain, and even surpass their New Year’s fitness resolutions.”

Exuding confidence and encouragement, Keuilian presented his vision for the company:

“As one of the fastest growing global brands in the group fitness and personal training industry, Fit Body Boot Camp’s Global Goal is to expose and engage 20% of the world’s population to a healthy and fit lifestyle by the year 2020.”

Whether Keuilian and Fit Body Boot Camp will experience the fruition of this particular resolution remains to be seen. For those seeking assistance with their personal New Year’s resolutions, however, Keuilian is certain about one thing: Fit Body Boot Camp is their best bet for transforming their bodies and lives.

About Keuilian Inc.

Keuilian Inc. (est. 2007) was founded by fitness marketing and business consultant Bedros Keuilian, who has been named the “hidden genius” behind several of the biggest names in the fitness industry.

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.

ANY LAB TEST NOW® is joining the cause by encouraging customers to get tested and take advantage of special pricing on related lab tests during the month of November. In addition to the discounted prices, special promotions will be going on in select locations.

“My husband is a Type 1 diabetic. Although he is affected by the disease, it is important for all family members to understand diabetes,” states Terri McCulloch, Vice President of Sales & Marketing with ANY LAB TEST NOW. “Diabetics are constantly struggling with diet limitations, high and low blood sugar, figuring out how much insulin to take if they are insulin-dependent and so forth. Then, they require frequent lab testing to monitor their health. They need a family support system to manage their diabetes most effectively.”

Various ANY LAB TEST NOW locations are offering special deals on the following tests related to diabetes: Hemoglobin A1c, Glucose (Serum), Lipid Panel or the VAP® test, and Microalbumin Urinalysis.
