Dear Byram Customer,

Are you ready for the summer?  Hopefully, you'll have a chance to enjoy a holiday break. Before you do, make sure you have all the supplies you need to take care of your diabetes.  At Byram Healthcare, we know that diabetes doesn't take vacations, so neither do we!  Contact us any time. 

In the meantime, we hope you enjoy the summer edition of Byram's diabetes newsletter, chock full of the latest and greatest diabetes news and informational articles from the diabetes field.  My practice's clinical team is proud to provide these materials for Byram, but we're always looking for feedback and ideas from you.

Happy reading and stay healthy!

Wound Awareness for People with Diabetes

June is Wound Care Awareness Month, so what should people with diabetes know about it? Wound healing is central to remaining healthy and functional. With diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, vascular disease or COPD, wounds may be slower to heal and you may be more prone to wound infections


College Life

If you’re a college student you know the end of the semester is a ROUGH time. Final exams, projects, papers, last assignments and whatever else you have going on in life. For me, the ending includes a lot more insulin due to increased stress levels. Learning how to adjust my insulin needs to compensate was something that was incredibly important for me.

Life After Diagnosis

After diagnosis, the next few months can feel hard and some wonder if life will ever feel normal again. Add Covid to the mix and the things intensify. After diagnosis many people wonder when they can start traveling again, sleep through the night and feel like life resembles some kind of normal. While a lot goes into managing diabetes, life will go on, and it can still be beautiful.
