    Ask MomRN Show: Sarah Michelle Gellar on Pertussis, Diabetes, Cybersecurity Tips

    in Family

    Today we are continuing our 7th Anniversary Celebration with new guests and one of our all-time favorite interviews!


    Nearly 30 million Americans have diabetes, and about six million people use life-saving insulin to manage their diabetes. The disease is complex and often overwhelming, creating barriers that may prevent people with diabetes from enjoying the same opportunities as everyone else. Certified Diabetes Educator and Registered Dietician, Tami Ross joins us to talk about things people with diabetes can do to simplify their lives.


    While being held hostage through your phone or computer by a cyber attacker sounds like the plot of a movie, the reality is it’s happening every day to unsuspecting victims. People are being locked out of their devices—losing access to family photos, financial information and other files—by cybercriminals who are threatening to delete their data forever unless they pay a ransom. Cybercriminals are preying on people with these attacks in the places most of us spend the majority of our time: online and on our smartphones. Joining us to share details of the newly released Internet Security Threat Report is Kevin Haley is director of Symantec Security Response.


    In June 2013, actress Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) shared why it's important to her as a mom to protect kids against pertussis by asking family members & friends to be vaccinated. Her interview ranks as our most downloaded interview ever! Today we are replaying this interview as we continue to celebrate 7 years on BTR!


    We'll also be announcing the winner of the Barbie Bubble-Tastic Mermaid Doll giveaway and a NEW GIVEAWAY!! Tune in!

    Nearly 30 million Americans have diabetes, and about six million people use life-saving insulin to manage their diabetes. The disease is complex and often overwhelming, creating barriers that may prevent people with diabetes from enjoying the same opportunities as everyone else.


     


    Certified Diabetes Educator and Registered Dietician, Tami Ross joins us today to talk about things people with diabetes can do to simplify their lives. Welcome!


     




    What are some of the challenges people with diabetes face on a daily basis?



    What tips do you have for people to best control their diabetes?



    Can you tell us about the “Dynamic Duos” education campaign and the role diabetes educators play in working with patients?



    Are there new technologies that reduce the steps to insulin injection and conceal the needle?



    How much of a game changer is this new needle where you don’t have to actually see the needle itself? How big of a deal is that for diabetes patients?



    Where can we go for more information?


    Diabetes requires continual blood sugar monitoring, meal planning, exercise and stress management. Medication may be needed for the rest of their lives, including insulin, which often requires multiple injections per day.
