Treating High Blood Sugar - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT:
This video will teach you how to manage and treat high blood sugar. Please watch the entire video before treating your high blood sugar. After you eat food that contains carbohydrates, your body breaks it down into a sugar called glucose. Your body makes a hormone called insulin that helps you either use or store blood sugar. When you have diabetes, your body does not make enough insulin or cannot use the insulin it makes properly. This can cause you to have too much sugar in your blood, which is a condition called hyperglycemia. Hyperglycemia can happen when you do not take enough insulin or diabetes medicine; take other medicines that increase blood sugar; eat more food or carbohydrates than you usually do; do not get enough exercise or physical activity; get sick, injured, or have surgery; have emotional stress, such as family or work problems; or have changes to hormone levels, such as during menstrual periods. If you have hyperglycemia or your blood sugar is too high, you may feel very thirsty and have to urinate a lot. You may also feel very tired and notice your vision is blurry. If you do not treat hyperglycemia, your blood sugar may build up to a dangerously high level, requiring you to seek immediate emergency care. The first step to understanding how to treat high blood sugar is knowing your normal blood sugar target range. If you feel or notice symptoms of hyperglycemia, be sure to check your blood sugar level right away. If your blood sugar is above your target range make sure you drink plenty of water or other sugar free liquids to stay hydrated. Take your insulin or diabetes medication the way your health care provider says you should. Do not take extra medication without first checking with your health care provider. Check your blood sugar every four hours. Follow your normal meal plan and increase your physical activity or exercise if you can. Do not exercise if your blood sugar is above 240. Exercise may make your blood sugar level go even higher. Contact your health care provider if your blood sugar stays above your target range or you notice the following symptoms that may need immediate treatment-- shortness of breath, breath that smells fruity, or your mouth feels very dry. You can help prevent hyperglycemia by regularly checking your blood sugar, following your normal meal plan, taking your diabetes medication as prescribed by your doctor, controlling stress, and exercising regularly.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"This past year, your company prepared three medical illustrations for our cases; two in which we received six figure awards; one in which we received a substantial seven figure award. I believe in large part, the amounts obtained were due to the vivid illustrations of my clients' injuries and the impact on the finder of fact."

"We are extremely pleased with the quality of the medical exhibits and the timely manner in which they were provided. I will certainly recommend your company to my business associates who could benefit from your services. Please tell Brian Wilson [Director of Content Development, Senior Medical Illustrator] that he did an exceptional job on these exhibits."

"I wanted to thank you for the terrific job you did illustrating my client's injuries. The case was settled at the pre-suit mediation, and I believe a good part of the success we had was due to the medical legal art you prepared.

Your work received the ultimate compliment at the conclusion of the mediation. The hospital risk manager took the exhibit with them at the conclusion of mediation, and will be using it to train nurses on how to prevent bed sores..."

"Medical illustrations are essential during trial for any medical malpractice case. The people at MLA have the uncanny ability of creating medical illustrations that simplify the most complex of medical concepts and human anatomy to a lay audience. The exhibits of MLA allow experts to easily describe complex concepts and human anatomy in a manner that could not be done otherwise.

In addition, their custom illustrations show in great detail the extent of injuries suffered and the devastating effects they have had on the client's anatomy. These custom illustration can show, side by side, the body before and after a catastrophic injury. The effect of this juxtaposition is unmatched by any testimony that can be adduced at the time of trial.

Even jurors after trial have commented on the ease with which they grasp medical concepts and anatomy once the MLA exhibits were introduced and used by my experts. Even judges who have "seen it all" are thoroughly impressed by the detail and sophistication of the illustrations.

I would not want to try a case without them."
