Nurses with QM Elite Nitrile gloves during Nurse week 1951.
Happy Nurses Week from QuickMedical.
A diabetes diagnosis isn’t good news. If you’ve been diagnosed with diabetes, you’re going to have to manage your diabetes through lifestyle changes and potentially diabetes medications and diabetes products. A diabetes diagnosis also isn’t a death sentence or a life sentence to pain and misery. A diabetes diagnosis can mean little to no change in many aspects of your life, and little to no discomfort because of diabetes. The end results of your diabetes diagnosis depend on a variety of factors, but mainly on how well you are able to manage your diabetes before medication.
The Bayer A1CNow+ for Diabetes Care is annually certified by the National Glycohemoglobin Standardization Program (NGSP) and therefore traceable to the Diabetes Control and Complications Trial (DCCT). Each lot of products is factory calibrated using a set of blood samples that have been quantitated by an NGSP certified laboratory using an NGSP certified method. Since in-field calibration is neither needed nor possible, the user cannot alter the accuracy of the test. Ask your doctor about in office testing with the Bayer A1CNow.
Currently, you can save 15% off retail on every 2-pack of the Bayer A1CNow 3021 System purchased at QuickMedical and receive free factory-direct shipping.
Diabetes is currently not a curable disease. Treatment for diabetes is not aimed at curing the disease, but managing the symptoms and stopping the damage it can do to the body. Most patients are required to manage their diabetes on their own with a series of routine tests along with diet and lifestyle changes. Tests that are routinely only performed for some patients in a lab or doctor’s office, should be performed at home, regularly for many diabetes patients. Because diabetes affects the body’s blood, blood testing is essential. A1C testing is a common test for diabetes diagnosis and diabetes management. Click ahead to learn more.
Plaster model of executed Chinese pirate
The neck stump of this executed Yangzee River pirate is surprisingly accurate for what was probably a sideshow prop. The cervical spine, blood vessels, muscles, trachea, and esophagus are all visible.
The muscular nature of the esophagus is highly visible here. You can also see the hardness of the trachea.
The donation of this model to the Science Museum London came with little accompanying information, but it is known that it was produced in England, between 1910 and 1922. The braid is real human hair, and the plaster and finish is of a high quality. Given its “blood-splattered” carrying case, it was most likely a prop in a traveling sideshow.
April 13 QuickMedical joined with Bartell Drugs in support of the American Diabetes Association. QuickMedical and Bartell Drugs lent a helping hand to the American Diabetes Association Seattle Expo. The Expo was a day-long free event at the Washington State Convention Center designed to help the community learn how to eat healthy, be active, and change the future of diabetes in Seattle. The Expo included health screenings, cooking demos, and expert presentations on diabetes and health.
Bartell Drugs and QuickMedical assisted in the Expo’s health screening area. Cholesterol and A1C tests are both important ways to screen for diabetes risk. Bonnie, from our sales team, and Robert, our sales director, attended the event and assisted in QuickMedical’s donation of QM Elite nitrile exam gloves, alcohol wipes, and gauze pads to the health screening area. The Bartell Drugs health screening area ran lipid tests using CardioChek medical devices and A1C tests using the Bayer A1C Now+ Meter for diabetes care. These items were also supplied to the event by QuickMedical.
Thanks to Bartell Drugs for being a great customer and letting us help their efforts with the American Diabetes Association. Events like the Expo prove that education remains one of the best ways to fight and stop diabetes.
