Diabetes Update #188: Managing Erectile Dysfunction

March 1, 2014

My New Diabetes Articles for HealthCentral:

Last month HealthCentral published four more of my diabetes articles about all aspects of the condition:

Drugs or Blood Sugar Control for Diabetic Neuropathy
Drugs might help relieve the pain of diabetic neuropathy. Blood sugar control can cure it, but it’s a long process requiring great discipline. Do you have enough?

Prepare to See Your Diabetes Doctor
When we see a doctor, whether an endocrinologist or a PCP, we need to be sure not to abdicate our responsibility.

Why We Take Which Diabetes Drug
That we manage our diabetes is more important than how we do it. While I prefer using a very low-carb diet, most people rely on two diabetes drugs.

Managing Erectile Dysfunction with Diabetes
Sexual problems are all too common for both men and women who have diabetes. But unlike some of the other complications of this disease, we have good ways of dealing with this difficulty that can stand in the way of living life fully.


Fitness and Photograph for Fun:

Last month I published three more of my articles on staying fit by getting the activity we need. Photography gets me to hike, and hiking keeps me fit:

Wood Ducks
Wood ducks are the most colorful waterbirds native to North America. How many colors do you think that the beautiful birds in these four photos have?

My Sweetheart and Me
My sweetheart Sue and I traveled to Clear Creek, Colorado, where we met my friend Marveen, who had been instrumental in bringing us together. We found beautiful waterbirds on the creek.

Sandstone Ranch
Adult and juvenile bald eagles in a tree and in the sky were the stars of the show when my hiking buddy and I hiked Sandstone Ranch near Longmont, Colorado.



New Flickr Site

I keep added some of my favorites nature photographs on Flickr.com. In the past month I have added several more. You can find them the easiest way by clicking here


Dr. Bernstein's Webcast
If you have any interest in controlling your diabetes by low-carb eating, one of the best resources is Dr. Richard K. Bernstein's monthly webcast. It's an hour of excellent diabetes education available free either on the Internet or by phone. You can click here to register http://www.diabetes911.net/askdrb/index.php.

Dr. Bernstein's next live webcast will be on Wednesday, March 26, 2014, at 7PM CST, 8PM EST, 6PM MST, 5PM PST. He designed it to answer your most important questions concerning diabetes and to offer his thoughts on the latest developments in this area.


Searching for My Articles
Whenever you want to find anything that I have written about diabetes -- whether on my website or on HealthCentral Network -- the easiest way is to use the search tool on my site. You can search for all of the articles on my site or for the "Diabetes Developments" blog or the "Fitness and Photography for Fun" blog or what I have written at HealthCentral, which is now a part of Remedy Health Media.

Just go to mendosa.com/search and check which one of the four sites you want to search and enter what you want to find in the search block.
