Gout and Diabetes

It has been a while since I talked about gout and diabetes. Even though these two conditions are not directly related their cause are are very similar in that they are diet related. Gout was known in the earlier days as the disease of kings because of the life style of kings. Follow the link to "Disease of Kings" Gout is caused or at least aggravated by an unhealthy diet. For example high purine foods like organ meats, shell fish, and high sugary drinks can increase the risk of having a gout attack. The eating habits of those who get gout may also cause obesity, and with obesity the risk of type 2 diabetes increases. The conclusion of all this is that those who get gout may have a high risk of getting type 2 diabetes as well. For more information please follow the link to webmd, this site will explain the risks and how you may reduce the risks of both gout and diabetes. Eat well, Live well.

Weight loss and gout

There is a lot of talk about the effect of obesity and gout. This prompts the question of how do we loose weight and keep it off? There are may products that claim that they will help you drop the weight and keep it off if you take this pill and keep taking it the rest of your life. There is also the shakes, drinks, bars and supplements. Some of them work others are just a gimmick to get your hard earned cash. I have a friend that started to use SENSA®, he is about 60 years old with diabetes, bad back and other ailments. I saw him about a year ago and he looked sick and unhealthy. Then the other day I ran into him in the pharmacy, he looked healthy with more energy. I asked him what he was doing that he looked so healthy. He told me that he started to use SENSA® and that he has lost about 40 lbs. He said that he started to feel so good that he was swimming every day at a local fitness center. I am not sure if it was the SENSA® or the swimming that has made the difference. I think it was a combination of both. All I know is he looks more healthy than he has in years, he looks like he has more energy and his attitude seemed to even have improved. Dr. Oz had a special on his show about SENSA® and if I remember it correctly they were unable to disprove it or prove it. I guess that you will just have to give it a try and see if it works for you. Keep an open mind and the write about your experience. Good Luck Check Out the SENSA® website through this link.

My cell phone service is with Walmart Family Mobile. I have my Wife, Son and a Daughter on it along with myself. So far I really like the service and have had no significant problems with the service. I am using the Samsung Dart phone, it is a Smart Phone but doesn't have all the bells and whistles other Smart Phones have.  Walmart Family Mobile uses T-Mobile as their carrier, I have used T-Mobile in the past and enjoyed the service. I have found that I have service in buildings and other areas where other services are weak or no service at all.
Brother HL-2270DW Laser Printer (Google Affiliate Ad)If you are trying to save money on phone service I would suggest Walmart Family Mobile, they have provided excellent service service for myself and my family.
Have you visited any good eateries lately?  Just wanted to let you know of a little place in Logan, Utah that is a great little hamburger joint.  It's a simple little place and they don't spend a lot on the ambiance and it is only open from about 10;00 AM to 7:00 PM. It is located on South Main Street at 695 South Main Street Phone number is 435-755-2851. They serve on of the best hamburgers in town with a price that won't break the bank. I have tried their Mushroom Swiss Burger and Fries.  They never short you on food and the staff is friendly. I have also tried their regular Hamburger, and Pastrami Burger, all of them excellent.  They serve cold sandwiches as well.  If you find yourself in Logan and have some time for lunch stop by Burger Express and enjoy a hamburger or sandwich with fries

Greetings All

Here it is Jan 30th, 2013 and my gout has been almost non existent. I have had some pain in my toes (the big toe joint) on both feet.  The pain has only lasted one day or even less and never bad enough to keep me from getting things done.
I am looking for work either part time or full time.  Oh by the way I was visiting with a manager of a local restaurant and it appears that because of our new "Affordable Healthcare" that some small businesses are only hiring part time help because of the fines associated with the New Plan. The manager told me that she was going to try to employee share. That means that she is going to work with other managers and share a cook.  The cook would then get close to full time hours and both businesses would have the benefit of a skilled cook. I could see how this might work for other businesses.

Welcome to the new way of doing business.

See ya
