Hearing Loss Could Become Diabetes

 


You are going to England stop in Kent at the Leeds Castle and see the

museum with over 100 dog collars.

Hearing loss may be an early warning of diabetes. Multiple researc

h studies

have indicated people with diabetes are approximately twice as likely

to lose

their hearing as those without the disease. Any visit to an audiolo

gist that

results in a diagnosis of hearing loss should be followed up by a c

all to your

regular physician. Untreated hearing loss and dementia have been li

nked.

Hearing loss may be a complication of cardiovascular disea

se, per Senior

Voice America.

The Food and Drug Administration approved a new heart failure drug fr

om

Novartis that cardiologists say could potentially improve the liv

es of

millions of patients with the condition. The drug, Entresto, was s

tudied in a

clinical trial of more than 8,000 adults and reduced the rate of ca

rdiovascular

death and hospitalization compared to Enalapril, a standard generic t

herapy.

The State Department realized a little on the late side that our United State

s

Army troops are being sent all over the world and that the troopers

passports are being filled up at a rapid pace. For example, as noted in

the

Army Times, as of December 18, 2015 we have soldiers in Afghanistan

,

Denmark, Iraq, Italy, Kuwait, Peru and South East Asia.

It must be stress.

Ac

cording to Department of Defense data, 275 soldiers,

sailors, airmen and Marines took their own lives in 2015, two more tha

n in

2014 and 22 more than in 2013. The Military Crisis Line is staffed 24

hours

a day, seven days a week. Call (800) 273-8255 and press 1.

In 2016 women will be able to join the ranks of the Army

s infantry, armor

and special operations units. A decision by the Secretary of

Defense to open

nearly 220,000 jobs across the military to women will lift all gender-bas

ed

restrictions, as long as they qualify and meet the standards.

Don

t kid yourself, because when men can see how the ladies do, then

Fire

Departments all over our nation will make an effort to hire and

promote

women. How many of us realize Culver City Fire Dept. has never

ever had

even one female in the fire house? I

m old enough to remember when police

departments didn

t hire anyone but men.

Cousin Neil says,

Now that women are eligible for all jobs in the military,

now is the time for them to register for the Selective Servic

e.

The big guys, as noted in the weekly Navy `Times, don

t mess around. Oh

my, they fired the Captain of the guided missile submarine, Georgia,

for

hitting a buoy and then running aground. The commanding officer of the

Guam-based fast attack submarine, Oklahoma City, was fired for

deficiencies in his leadership and lack of proficiency in comma

nd. And,

finally, a one star admiral was fired from his job as commanding office

r,

Pacific Fleet carrier strike group training command, following allegati

ons he

used his government computer to access pornography.

If you are an old-timer like me, you remember November 1979 whe

n Iran

stormed the American Embassy in Tehran and held hostage 53 State

Department personnel for 444 days. Well, finally survivors or their es

tates

Here is the latest from Admiral Moran, the Chief of Naval

Personnel,
