Living With Autism

Autism is a condition that currently affects many children and is especially prevalent in the US. Autism is the most common condition in a group of developmental disorders known as the autism spectrum disorders (ASDs).

It is characterized by impaired social interaction, problems with verbal and nonverbal communication, and unusual, repetitive, or severely limited activities and interests. Autism is not the only spectrum disorder currently affecting small children , Asperger syndrome, Rett syndrome, childhood disintegrative disorder, and pervasive developmental disorder are other ASDs that are less prevalent but are still fairly well known in the medical community.

Recently – in the past 10 years, especially – the rates for autism have skyrocketed. Experts and medical professionals have struggled to find any sort of explanation for the rise in diagnoses and even for the disorder itself, and have come up empty handed. A number of theories have been suggested, among them, that autism is caused by mercury in drinking water supplies and certain flu vaccines, that it is being transmitted via the MMR vaccination and even that it is being caused by exposure to television.

This collection is assembled to provide you with background on every aspect of autism. Everything from background overviews of the disorder to some competing theories on autism’s root causes. Whether you want to learn more about the history of autism, find out if your child exhibits potential signs of autism, or read academic research on the most recent developments in the fight against autism, you can find it here.

Living With Diabetes

Living With Diabetes

There isn’t a great deal of good news being revealed about diabetes. In just one generation, diabetes has had literally a six-fold increase. In 1985 there were an estimated 30 million people with diabetes, while today diabetes affects more than 230 million people, which is almost 6 percent of the world's adult population, according to the World Diabetes Foundation.

Unfortunately, that number is expected to grow to 350 million in less than 20 years if action is not taken. Diabetes is one of the major causes of premature death worldwide. Every 10 seconds a person dies from diabetes-related causes and death rates are predicted to rise by 25 percent over the next decade.

All this information is not good, and may even sound a bit lugubrious, there is certainly light at the end of the tunnel. While diabetes does not have a cure, it is treatable and can be lived with by those diagnosed for many years. This is great for those with loved ones enduring diabetes, but diabetes puts quite a strain on the health care system. It is one of the most expensive ailments in medicine because those who have it require constant maintenance from insulin, often have increased risk of other health problems and generally require more medical care.

Living with diabetes will always be a struggle for those who have it, but with advances in modern medicine there are more possibilities than ever to deal with it. This collection contains a wealth of information about diabetes. Everything from possible indicators to blood sugar testing to ways to protect loved ones with diabetes in the event of a natural disaster.
