Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 22, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD March 22, 1973 LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Mother isn't seriously ill Your horoscope By JtANE DIXON Dear Dr. Lamb My Mom, age 70, after having suffered from insomnia, was given a complete physical examination by a doctor and the only thing he found was that she is a mild diabetic. The Wood sugar tion was 110. A month later it was 127. She was pul on a diet and got so nervous and upset that she lost eight pounds. She is five-foot four and weighs 107. When the doctor saw how upset she was over the diabetic diet he told her to forget about the whole thing and told her to cat what she wanted but she con- tinued to watch her intake of sweets and starches for fear the blood sugar level might rise again. The following month her Wood sugar was 130 and she had a glucose io'.erance test which showed her to be s'.ightly diabetic. The doctor ad- vised her to eat everything, but limit her intake of sweets and avoid table sugar. Understand- ably, she is rather confused. Sty question is, if she does eat a limited amount of sweets and starches and avoids table sugar will the diabetes gradu- ally worsen as time goss or., thus requiring her to take med- icine, or will the condition be cleared if she avoids sweets, fats, and starches completely? She still hasn't gained any weight and is afraid to eat any- tlu'ng which she feels might up cancer grant made EDMONTON (CP) Health Minister Neil Crawford today announced a grant of to the Alberta Provincial Cancer Hospitals Board. Tne grant is intended to as- sist an expanded research pro- gram planned by the board Mr. Crawford said major de- velopments undertaken by the board include increased empha sis on research and education end an out-patient services. her blcod sugar. Incidentally, upon each of her examina- ions for blood sugar there was never any sugar in the urine. Dear Reader Certainly if your mother has diabetes it must be relatively mi'.d. With- out seeing the results of the three-hour glucose tolerance it would be difficult to say what her problem is. However, since you tell me that she has had no sugar in tile urine arid as- suming that her kidney func- tion is normal I know that her blood sugar level couldn't risa tco high, even during the test. This, plus the relatively low >lood sugars you mentioned, eads me to believe that the doc- or had ample reason to feel hat if she was a diabetic it was very mild indeed and iiiln't reouire medicine. The mi'd change in blood sugar levels that, your molher must have are not particularly 'ncommcn in her age group attd I don't think it's anything to be unduly about. There is no way I can guar- antee you that your mother's problem won't progress, but as long as she doesn't gain a lot cf weight and she certainly doesn't have a weight problem I would guess that it would be unlikely that she would de- velop severe enough diabetes to require treatment other than simple dietary manage- ment. 1 really would like lo reas- sure you that from the infor- mation you have given me it sounds like your mother doasn't have any real problem ar.d that what she needs more than anytlung else is reassurance ar.d a reasonably normal diet with a moderate restriction on her intake of ssveets and sugar.

For example, no matter how large an algae sea- weed may grow, none of its numerous cells are adapted for special duties. Each cell can carry on all the necessary life processes of metabolism and reproduction. Some of the modern kelps are ragged ribbons as long as 220 feet. One end of each trailing streamer Is attached lo the floor of the sea by a group of average cells acting as a holdfast. There are no cells to carry on the specialized duties of roots and no stem cells to support the brownish-green ban- ners of kelp foliage. .The kelp algae like salty wat- ers that are cold hut not too cool. They thrive off Scotland and Ireland, where the north- ern seas are wanned by the Gulf Stream. Dense kelp for< ests also grow in the Pacific, especially off the shores of Jap- an and California.
