Monday Medical: Living well with diabetes 29.6.2015 Steamboat Pilot
Being diagnosed with diabetes can be overwhelming. But there can be a silver lining: properly managing the disease can lead to a fuller, healthier lifestyle. “Things that people are asked to do in terms of managing diabetes are the same things people should be doing in everyday life,” said Pam Wooster, registered dietician nutritionist and certified diabetes educator. Eating well and exercising — both of which are important to managing diabetes — have numerous benefits to health and wellbeing. And they can have other unexpected benefits — learning to make meals from scratch can lead to a love of cooking, while upping activity can result in newfound hobbies like hiking or yoga.

Monday Medical: Building better bones 15.3.2015 Steamboat Pilot
Far from being hard and brittle, the bones in our bodies are living, growing tissue. The denser and stronger bones are, the less likely they are to fracture and break. In a place like Steamboat, where active lifestyles are common, it’s important to build and maintain healthy bones — especially for women. “Living here and being on a mountain bike or on a horse or on a ski mountain leads to more falls,” said Dr. Diane E.B. Petersen, a Steamboat Springs OB/GYN. “Women need to have strong bones because an active lifestyle leads to falls.” Bone turnover is natural and is happening all the time: a little bone is lost, and a little more is made. Children and teenagers grow much more bone than they lose, while adults can lose more than they make. Both women and men are at risk for osteoporosis, a condition in which new bone production doesn’t keep up with bone loss, weakening the bone. According to the National Osteoporosis Foundation, 54 million Americans have low bone density or osteoporosis. One in two women, ...
