Treatments for Type 2 Diabetes - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT:
You or someone you know may have been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. This video will show you some ways to help manage it. There are steps you can take that may help you keep your blood glucose, or sugar, within the normal range. This may help you avoid the complications of type 2 diabetes. This may be done through a combination of eating a healthy diet, getting regular exercise, and taking medications as prescribed by your doctor as necessary. Some people may also need to check their blood sugar as directed by their doctor. Eating a healthy diet may help to lower your blood sugar level. You can help do this by eating a diet with fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Have meals and snacks about the same time every day. Carbohydrates are substances your body uses to make energy. Eat the right balance of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. And reduce your intake of high sugar foods. Getting regular exercise, even just 30 minutes a day, may lower your blood sugar level and may lead to weight loss. Talk to your doctor before starting an exercise program. You may need to take one or more oral or injectable diabetic medications to help lower blood sugar. Some of these medications may increase the amount of insulin your pancreas makes. Others reduced insulin resistance in your skeletal muscles. Some medications make certain tissues more sensitive to insulin. Others cause your digestive system to take in less sugar. Some medications let helpful chemicals in your digestive system stay active longer. These chemicals help lower your blood sugar level. Other medicines help your pancreas release insulin when your blood sugar is high. They also slow down the release of insulin when your blood sugar is low. And some medications increase the amount of sugar excreted in your urine. If your diabetes cannot be controlled with diet, exercise, and/or other medications, your doctor may also consider insulin. Insulin that you inject helps to replace the insulin your body would normally produce. A healthcare professional will train you to inject them just under your skin. You may need to check the level of sugar in your blood with a glucometer. Ask your doctor how often to check. To do this you will prick your finger with a small needle called a lancet. Then you will place a drop of blood in the glucometer, following the directions provided with your glucometer. Based on your blood sugar level, you may need to adjust your meals, physical activity, or medication dose as directed by your doctor. By treating and controlling your blood sugar level, you may help prevent the complications from type 2 diabetes. It is important to take your medications as directed by your doctor. Do not go off your medication unless your doctor tells you to do so. Tell him or her about any side effects you may have.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"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."

"I thought you might want to know that after we sent a copy of your illustration to the defendants, with a copy to the insurance company, they increased their offer by an additional million dollars and the case was settled for $1,900,000.00.

I appreciate your help!"

"Thank you for the splendid medical-legal art work you did for us in the case of a young girl who was blinded by a bb pellet. As a result of your graphic illustrations of this tragic injury, we were able to persuade the insurance company to increase their initial offer of $75,000.00 to $475,000.00, just short of their policy limits.

We simply wanted you to know how pleased we were with your work which, to repeat, was of superlative character, and to let you know that we would be more than willing to serve as a reference in case you ever need one. Many thanks for an extraordinary and dramatic depiction of a very serious injury which clearly "catapulted" the insurance company's offer to a "full and fair" amount to settle this case."
