Remote Glucose Monitoring with the Rightest Care App



Remote Glucose Monitoring with the Rightest Care App

When the coronavirus upended the world in early 2020, many people around the world were restricted to their homes or their local area for months at a time. Not only that, but people were more conscious of their health than ever whilst many of us were simultaneously reluctant to go for checkups and expose ourselves to greater risk of contracting the virus. There was at least one positive note to emerge from the pandemic though: it spurred the uptake and advancement of telehealth.

Telehealth encompasses any form of healthcare that takes place remotely. This includes teleconsulting, tele-education/training, telemonitoring and more. Smartphones are being used for more tasks than ever before and apps tailored for healthcare are plentiful. Apps that assist with glucose monitoring and allow data to be shared (e.g. with clinics, hospitals, doctors, family members) may fall into the telemonitoring classification.

Many people with diabetes have been using blood glucose monitoring devices for years. Most modern personal blood glucose monitors come equipped with Bluetooth functionality. This lets users sync their blood glucose test results from their meter to an app on their smartphone for further analysis. This also proves much more convenient since it allows users to scroll through test results on their smartphone touchscreen instead of needing to painstakingly scroll through results on an LCD screen one at a time.

Many established manufacturers have developed apps for use with their products. Bionime is one such company. Several of its Rightest blood glucose meter (BGM) products such as Rightest WizMaxGM700SBGM280B, and GT333 are Bluetooth-enabled and can transmit results to the company’s Rightest Care App. This app is available for both Android and iOS and is featured prominently on the official website.

What is Rightest Care?

A Mobile App to Connect Your Glucose Meter and Smartphone

Using Rightest BGM allows people to get a glucose reading anytime and test anywhere they go. People often test across mealtimes, upon waking, and after exercise. The Rightest Care App assists users in understanding these test results.

At its heart, Rightest Care is a piece of software that acts as a personal blood glucose tracker. Users can take measurements with their Rightest Glucose Meter and sync these via Bluetooth over to the app where they are automatically incorporated into data analysis. Syncing is quick and easy and happens automatically whenever the meter is placed near the phone it is paired with and the app is opened.

A Hub for Glucose Data Management

Powerful, comprehensive data analysis comes packaged inside the app. Users can view and engage with their test data in new ways and form plans of action to manage their diabetes more effectively. Being able to view blood glucose tests as part of a wider picture of your blood sugar patterns, makes real progress much easier.

The Starting Place for New Insights

Getting good insights into your blood glucose levels and what affects them is key for learning how to manage blood glucose more effectively. The Rightest Care app helpfully shows users comparisons across mealtimes and over a full day, the percentage of tests in range at specified times, average glucose levels, a full listing of glucose levels, and more.

What are the benefits of Rightest Care?

Compare blood glucose before and after meals over many days

Rightest Care App users can view their blood glucose before and after meals. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner can be viewed for every day of the week and compared at a glance.

Results are color-coded so they can be understood quickly: green numbers mean the result was in the target range set by the user; red means the test was outside this target range. There should be a rise in blood glucose following eating. However, too high a rise can be an issue. To help make things clear, Rightest Care underlines pairs of results:

  • Pink underlines highlight meals where the change in blood glucose exceeded 60mg/dL. This suggests the sugar or carbohydrate content of the meal was too high.
  • Blue underlines highlight results where the change in glucose failed to exceed 30mg/dL. In this case, the user may have had an unusually small meal.

Results averages 

The average blood glucose result for each time marker is displayed on a helpful bar graph. These can be calculated and displayed for 7, 14, 30, and 90-day periods. Users can identify which times of day they are seeing issues with their blood glucose and can see their progress over time.

Results in range

The percentage of test results above, below, and in the target range can also be viewed for each time marker. It’s encouraging to see how full the green “in target range” component of each bar can become!

Add detail to test results

Results on a glucose meter can have a status marker attached (wake up, before eating, after eating, etc.) but on the app so much more is possible. Additional details like notes, carbohydrates, insulin, and exercise have dedicated input methods. Users can even use their phone’s camera to add pictures of their meals. This additional detail can help remove the mystery behind unexpected results and help people experiment with their diet and diabetes management methods.

Forgetting your meter or having a non-Bluetooth meter isn’t a problem. Test results can be inputted manually.

How Efficient Is PRP Therapy for Chronic Pain?



How Efficient Is PRP Therapy for Chronic Pain?

Lingering, debilitating, chronic pain has a cascade impact on your body and everyday life. To relieve pain, most patients and their physicians have resorted to opioid drugs, but the remedy has done more harm than good. Since the late 1990s, when drug manufacturers convinced doctors that opioids had no addictive properties, over 2M persons have become hooked on these painkillers, and almost 48,000 opioid-related overdose fatalities have been recorded. That statistic accounts for about 130 person’s daily, and the numbers do not seem to stop soon, but instead are rising even higher. Whereas drugs, when properly supplied and used, have a position in pain management, Dr. Garen Gajian of Pain & Anesthesia Care takes a different approach. Whenever possible, Dr. Gajian chooses interventional techniques that combine cutting-edge technology, nonpharmacological paths, and innovative procedures. One such effective technique is PRP therapy. Read on to discover how effective New Brunswick PRP Therapy is in addressing chronic pain.

How Does Your Body Deal With Pain?

When you get hurt, your body goes into self-healing mode and releases platelet cells to the wounded location right away. These platelet cells include important healing and growth factors that help to repair injured tissues. Moreover, these platelets call on stem cells within your body to help complete the healing process and alleviate swelling and discomfort.

How Does PRP Improve Your Body’s Pain-Relieving Capabilities?

Generally, PRP is a contemporary therapy that aids in the relief of pain by boosting your body’s natural healing mechanism. PRP operates much like your body’s own systems; it packs the wounded area with those all-essential platelets, while also speeding up the healing process by delivering the platelets to the targeted area quicker and in greater concentrations.

Dr. Gajian begins by extracting a small blood sample from your arm, just like any standard check-up. He then spins your blood at increased speeds in a centrifuge, separating blood rich in platelets from blood with low platelet quantities. After that, he uses a syringe to deliver the platelet-rich plasma blood to the wounded region, which is the root of your chronic pain. Now, all that is left is to wait for the platelets to do what they do best: neutralize your agony and start healing.

What Types Of Pain Does PRP Help With?

As PRP keeps providing immediate and lasting pain relief for various conditions, more applications are being discovered. Nonetheless, some of the conditions PRP therapy has proven effective with include:

§  ACL injuries

§  Sprained ligaments

§  Ankle sprains

§  Rotator cuff injuries

§  Plantar fasciitis

§  Osteoarthritis pain

§  Tendonitis

§  Arthritis

§  Back injuries

§  Spinal injuries

§  Neck injuries

§  Tennis elbow

§  Disc herniation

§  Post-surgical wounds

How Safe Is PRP Therapy?

The safety of PRP is maybe its most significant feature. PRP utilizes your blood; hence, there is virtually minimal chance of rejection and infection. Besides, there is very little downtime to deal with. Only a needle injection to draw the blood and inject the platelets is needed; hence, you can resume your schedule right away.

How Efficient Is PRP?

Everybody reacts to PRP in their unique way. Most persons enjoy instant pain alleviation and complete recovery within several weeks or months. As your body reacts to the treatment and your stem cells begin to regenerate, you should notice a considerable reduction in your pain.  

More significantly, platelet-rich plasma strives to repair the inherent problem that has been triggering your chronic pain to continue to live free of pain.

Ultimately, PRP therapy has numerous advantages over other standard pain relief procedures. Not only will you enjoy an accelerated healing process and reduced downtime, but also minimal post-procedure complications and enhanced mobility. To explore the benefits of this revolutionary pain solution and establish if it could work for you, call the Pain & Anesthesia Care office in New Brunswick, NJ office or book an appointment online today.

 Effective Remedies for the Flu and Strep Throat Infections



 Effective Remedies for the Flu and Strep Throat Infections

Having a runny nose might seem irritating and cause discomfort, and in the case of children, it may be tougher to handle the condition. This situation may bother you, but there are available flu & strep Sugar Land treatments to help you or your child recover from the infections and leave you feeling healthy again.

What is the difference between the flu and strep throat?

The flu is also known as influenza, an infection that affects your respiratory system; lungs, throat, and nose. The influenza virus transmits through tiny airdrops if a person who has the flu sneezes or coughs around you. Strep throat is an infection that causes scratchy, raspy, and itchy throat. The condition stems from a bacterium, Streptococcus pyogenes, a very highly transmissible bacteria. Strep throat is spread when droplets from a person who has the infection sneeze or cough. Surfaces with bacteria can also be a source of infection.

What are the symptoms of flu and strep throat?

Both infections can affect all ages, so if you or your loved one develop the following symptoms, you should visit your doctor. The symptoms may be:

·                     Sore throat

·                     Fever

·                     Swollen tonsils

·                     Headache

·                     Stuffy nose

You may also develop the symptoms but not have strep throat. The flu may feel a lot more like a common cold in its initial stages, but the flu comes on suddenly. The flu also feels much worse than a cold. If strep throat is not treated, it can lead to further complications like rheumatic fever or inflammation in the kidney. If the symptoms start worsening, you develop chest pains, seizures, or difficulty breathing; you should get immediate medical care.

How are flu and strep throat treated?

Your doctor may first have to conduct a comprehensive physical examination through tests to check for flu symptoms or strep throat. Both infections can use the Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test because the test is quick to spot the strains of the infections. Your doctor may also request a COVID-19 test to rule out its possibility. If you happen to have any of the infections, you will need to start treatment. Your doctor may give you painkillers and antibiotics to help reduce the symptoms and lower the risk of spread. If your doctor says the infection is severe, you may have to take an antiviral to help you recover from the flu. You should take the medication with food to reduce nausea and vomiting. You may also adopt some remedies at home like:

·                     Drinking plenty of liquids to avoid dehydration and keep your throat moist

·                     Get enough rest to help your body fight off the infection

·                     Use honey to soothe your throat. But do not give honey if your child is younger than a year.

·                     Gargling with salty water

After a few days, you should feel better in your throat, and you should take your total dosage. Seek emergency services if you see no improvement after two days of medication.

If you suspect you have the flu or strep throat, visit St. Michael’s Elite Hospital to find out more about the infection, get proper treatment, or book your appointment online.

Effective Treatments for Managing Chronic Kidney Disease



Effective Treatments for Managing Chronic Kidney Disease

Kidney disease is a medical condition requiring urgent attention to prevent further progression. There is a chance that you can get an early diagnosis and treatment before it develops into chronic kidney disease or even further to kidney failure. Tsegaw E Egziti M.D is a specialized doctor who can help you create a treatment plan and manage your condition.

What is kidney disease?

Kidney disease is a chronic disease that gradually involves the kidney’s malfunctioning. There are two kidneys in the human body, and they are responsible for the filtration and elimination of waste products from the blood, disposing of them through urine. Therefore if your kidney is not working correctly, they may be unable to filter and control your blood pressure accurately. Chronic kidney disease may always begin without detectable signs and may develop into a final stage failure, a fatal state if dialysis is not done, or even a kidney transplant. You may have to be on treatments for the rest of your life if you develop chronic kidney disease. But there are treatments available for managing your symptoms.

What are the signs and symptoms of kidney disease?

The signs and symptoms may develop gradually as the damage increases slowly. This damage may cause your body to build up waste or fluid and cause problems. The severity of the loss of function may cause signs and symptoms such as:

·                     Nausea and vomiting

·                     Fatigue

·                     Little or frequent urination

·                     Swollen feet

·                     High blood pressure

You may develop other signs and symptoms as the disease progresses, and you must see a doctor. An early diagnosis may prevent further progression of the disease to kidney failure.

What are the available treatments for kidney disease?

Your doctor may first have to carry out a comprehensive evaluation and run tests to determine the severity of your condition. Once the diagnosis is through, your doctor will recommend the proper treatment for you. These treatments may include:

·                     Medications

Your doctor may recommend particular drugs to help control the complications and make your life comfortable. There may be medications to lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol levels, and reduce swelling. These medications will help increase kidney function.

You may develop a final stage kidney disease, and this may require other forms of treatment such as:

·                     Dialysis

It is an artificial removal of waste products and fluid from the blood when your kidney fails to perform. If it is hemodialysis, a machine will filter excess fluid and waste products from your body. Your doctor may pass a tube through your belly and fill your cavity with a solution to absorb the waste and liquid. Later, the solution drains from the body with the debris alongside.

·                     Kidney transplant

Your doctor may recommend surgical removal of your kidney and replacing it with a healthy one. A healthy transplant comes from a donor or the deceased. Once you have a successful transplant, you may need regular medications to prevent your body from declining the new kidney.
