#Trauma on Our #Health

IrmaIt turns-out our brains have a vital role in regulating our immune response. It also happens to be that our brains can be disoriented when a stressful event or trauma hits. So where does this leave us for the impact of trauma on our health? Last week, I was reflecting on some studies that implicate the triggering of Type 1 diabetes in kids that were predisposed to developing it. In other words, these are kids who were likely to develop T1D at some point, but these events were more like adding fuel to the fire creating a quick onset. Can anybody with T1D link a stressful event like death of a loved one, divorce or a natural disaster like earthquake, fire, hurricane shortly before your diagnosis?  I shared my thoughts on it with YouTube. Join us to grow the Dip a Stick Movement to bring a needle-free, no-blood, way for people without diabetes to see the hidden sign of high blood sugar. Early diabetes diagnosis is the best way to reduce diabetes complications.
