Sting in the tail for diabetes children

first_imgFacebook Diabetes Ireland says it is very concerned for children from Limerick, Clare and Tipperary who had been getting treatment in Dublin but who have been moved back to Limerick before the position of dietician is even advertised.The post is vital to the ongoing treatment of young children with type 1 diabetes and will allow for the roll-out of insulin pumps,  which in turn will save small children constant, painful injections.The dietician will make it possible for parents to get the complicated instructions to use the pump which delivers a small dose of insulin subcutaneously through a tiny tube, doing away with the need for several injections a day into tiny limbs.“We welcome the fact that the dietician will be appointed. That is a major breakthrough. But we are concerned that these children have been sent back to Limerick without the full supports in place to treat them. The diabetes unit in the Regional now has to cater for  children with fully fledged diabetes, who are using insulin pumps without the necessary back-up services,” a spokesperson for Diabetes Ireland told the Limerick Post.Diabetes Ireland has waged a long campaign to have children supplied with insulin pumps without having to travel five or six times a year to Dublin.“Evidence suggests that the pumps offer a high level of insulin control in childhood, and children who have them are much less likely to develop serious problems by the age of thirty. These are vascular problems which can become very serious and necessitate amputations,” the spokesperson said.HSE statistics  show there were 781 diabetes related limb amputations in 2010 and 2011, an increase of 20 per cent on the previous two years.When the dietician and a nurse support are in place, it will be possible to roll out the delivery of insulin pumps to children under the age of five in the next 12 moths, and for the following two years, other age groups up to young adults will be included. Twitter WhatsApp Email Print THERE was good news this week for children with diabetes and their parents, with the announcement that the post of children’s dietician for the diabetes unit in Limerick’s Regional Hospital is about to be advertised. However, the Limerick Post has learned that children who were being treated in Dublin have been sent back to Limerick before the support structures to treat them are put in place.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Linkedin Previous articleShannon is set to soarNext articleAwards highlight the best in Limerick admin NewsLocal NewsSting in the tail for diabetes childrenBy admin – November 22, 2012 484 Advertisementlast_img read more

first_imgHousing 37 Compulsory Purchase Orders issued as council takes action on derelict sites RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Facebook Linkedin THE village of Boher was buzzing over the June bank holiday, with the local community development association organising a series of events across a busy weekend.The festivities began on Friday May 31 with the opening of the refurbished community centre by Carmel Fox, CEO of Ballyhoura Development, with the blessing of Murroe parish priest Canon Tom Ryan.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Speaking at the opening, Ms Fox said: “Boher Community Development Association and this current project is an example to other communities of how a key project can be developed in an area through a combination of a strong structure in the Development Association and through community support in terms of fundraising.“I am delighted to see that the centre is now in full use.

FULL THROTTLE: Drag boat race brings thrills to Lake Simmie

first_img Fisher and Slade Jones of Ozark stood in a drizzling rain to cheer on their favorite drag boat in the Southern Outlaw Drag Boat race. Even though they are fans of the sport, the youngsters agreed they would rather watch than race.And, perhaps most of the adults that lined the shore of Lake Simmie near Brundidge Saturday would agree that drag boat racing is not for the faint of heart.When the drivers hit the throttle and the boats launch, a wall of water shoots up in the air and the boats are airborne for a few seconds before they land to finish the race at speeds between 80 and 100 mph., depending on the class.

The races were competitive. Lake Simmie is a great lake for drag boat racing.”Jackson said the spectator visibility is good from start to finish. However, some fans of the sport prefer to be near the launch site while others like to see the boats speed across the finish line.Saturday’s race was the second Jackson has hosted at Lake Simmie and he said the foundation has been laid for what could become a huge event for Pike County.“Drag boat racing is exciting and one that people of all ages can enjoy,” Jackson said. “Rayvon Graham, the lake owner, is supportive of the race and is agreeable for us to have other drag boat races a Lake Simmie. Right now, I’m thinking about moving the race to April. That’s the time of year when competitors are ready to get their boats in the water. The weather is warm and people are anxious to get outside so April would be a good time for drag boat racing.” Jackson said his hopes are that a promoter and/or sponsor would come on board.“That would really help kick this water sport off in this area of the state,” he said. “Drag boat races are also held on rivers. A race on the Chattahoochee River attracted around 3,000 people.”Jackson said he is looking forward to the growth of drag boat racing in Southeast Alabama and to Lake Simmie being a part of that growth. The next drag boat race in the nearby area will be on September 7 at Lake Jackson in Florala.

Synagogue shooting suspect pleads not guilty as funerals continue for the slain worshippers

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(PITTSBURGH) — The man accused of massacring 11 Jews at a Pittsburgh synagogue entered a not guilty plea Thursday as three of his alleged victims were laid to rest.Suspect Robert Bowers, 46, showed no emotion during his Thursday morning court appearance, only raising his voice to answer with an emphatic “yes!” to the question of if he understood the charges.He was charged Wednesday in a 44-count indictment that includes federal hate crimes. The charges include 11 counts of obstruction of free exercise of religious beliefs resulting in death and 11 counts of use and discharge of a firearm to commit murder during and in relation to a crime of violence.Bowers had “made statements indicating his desire to ‘kill Jews’” during the rampage at the Tree of Life on Saturday, Department of Justice prosecutors contend in the indictment.On Thursday public defender Michael Navarra entered a not guilty plea for Bowers and requested a trial, though no trial date has been set.Bowers, in handcuffs and a waist chain, showed no emotion when the mention was made of a possible death penalty.Meanwhile, grieving family and friends are continuing to gather at ongoing funerals for the slain worshippers.Richard Gottfried, 65, as well as married couple Sylvan Simon, 86, and Bernice Simon, 84, will be laid to rest Thursday.Gottfried, a dentist, had reconnected with his faith following his father’s death and at one point became the president of the 70-member congregation in Pittsburgh, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported.He is survived by his wife, Margaret A. “Peg” Durachko, who is also a dentist.The couple had worked together at the Squirrel Hill Medical Center’s dental clinic, where they treated refugees and immigrants, many of whom had never been to a dentist, the newspaper reported.“Do not let his death be in vain,” his wife said, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “Drive out evil from your own life and help another to drive it out of their life. The only way to combat evil is with love.”Sylvan Simon and his wife, Bernice Simon, were killed in the same synagogue where they married in December 1956, The Tribune-Review reported.“A loving couple, and they’ve been together forever,” longtime friend Michael Stepaniak told the newspaper. “I hope they didn’t suffer much, and I miss them terribly.”“They held hands and they always smiled, and he would open the door for her,” neighbor Heather Graham told the newspaper. “They were really generous and nice to everybody.”The couple’s front door has three stickers, according to The Tribune-Review: “Support Our Troops,” “God Bless America” and “America the Beautiful.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
