#Diabetes Type 2 can present with symptoms such as: increased #thirst, frequent #urination, excessive #hunger, and even unexplained #WeightLoss!

The term #ElectionStressDisorder has been used to address the #Anxiety that almost #TWO #THIRDS of #Americans feel during the current election process. If severe, it could actually lead to #Depression. My professional advice is to:

*Try also to catch up with friends and family, and *Consider reducing the amount of time spent watching TV and on various social media platforms.

Heart Disease is the Number 1 Cause of Death for Women in the United States, killing almost 300,000 women in 2017. In order to decrease your risk of Heart Disease, please follow these general recommendations:
* Exercise 30 min daily at least 3 days/week
* Eat a healthy, balanced diet, low in fat and processed foods
* Avoid drinking excess alcohol
* Stop cigarette smoking
* Manage stress by practicing Coping Techniques

Exercising is proven to improve the symptoms of Depression and Anxiety. Wonder about the Feel-Good Hormones, called endorphins (the natural cannabis-like brain chemicals)? Exercise produces a significant release of these hormones, and it helps patients to lift up their mood and feel happier! ANY type of exercise is good for your body and brain - be active, feel stronger and reclaim your health!
