Cardiovascular Conditions and Type 2 Diabetes - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT:
It is common for people with high blood pressure and abnormal lipid levels to also have type 2 diabetes. This video will show how having all of these conditions can affect your health, and what you can do to reduce your risk of type 2 diabetes. If you have high blood pressure, it means the force of the blood pushing on the walls of your blood vessels is too high. Your heart has to work harder when your blood pressure is high. Some people with high blood pressure develop type 2 diabetes. If you have abnormal levels of lipids in your blood, it may mean you have too much LDL cholesterol also known as bad cholesterol, or it may mean that you don't have enough HDL cholesterol also known as good cholesterol, or your triglyceride level also known as the fat in the blood may be too high. You may have more than one of these lipid abnormalities at the same time. People with abnormal lipid levels have a higher rate of type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is a condition where your blood glucose or blood sugar is elevated. Over time, high blood sugar can damage the blood vessels of your heart and other organs leading to other health problems. Having high blood pressure, abnormal lipid levels and type 2 diabetes can affect you in many ways. You will have a higher risk for other serious health problems such as coronary artery disease, heart attack, stroke and even death. You may need help taking care of yourself. You may also need to take more medications. Living with these conditions may cause depression. The good news is that there are things you can do to help lower your risk of developing type 2 diabetes. For example, you may need to make changes to your lifestyle. If you smoke, get the help you need to quit. Maintain or get to a healthy weight. Follow a healthy eating plan including low-fat and low-sodium foods. And work with your healthcare provider to determine the right amount of physical activity for you. Make sure you work with your healthcare provider to control your blood pressure and lipid levels. This includes taking medications as prescribed by your healthcare provider. Following the treatment plan, you and your healthcare provider discussed will help you feel better and reduce your risk of getting type 2 diabetes.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"It is with great enthusiasm that I recommend Medical Legal Art. We have used their services for three years and always found their professionalism, quality of work, and timely attention to detail to exceed our expectations. We recently settled two complicated catastrophic injury cases. One medical malpractice case involving a spinal abscess settled for 3.75 million and the other involving injuries related to a motor vehicle accident settled for 6.9 million. We consider the artwork provided by MLA to have been invaluable in helping us to successfully conclude these cases.

I highly recommend MLA to anyone seeking high quality, detailed medical legal artwork."

"[Your staff] was extremely efficient, cooperative and gracious and [their] efforts produced a demonstrative exhibit that we used effectively throughout our trial. The jury verdict of $3,165,000.00 was, in no small measure, due to the impact of the demonstrative evidence. You may be sure that we will call again."

"I just wanted to let you know that after several days on trial, I settled [my client's] construction accident case for $4.5 million. Immediately after the jury was discharged, I spoke with several jurors who told me that they really appreciated the medical illustrations for their clarity in dealing with [my client's] devastating injuries. They also expressed their gratitude in being able to read from a distance all of the notations without difficulty. Obviously, the boards were visually persuasive. I am certain that this contributed to our successful result."

Michael Gunzburg, Esq.
Attorney at Law.
New York, NY

"Your firm is great to work with and, most importantly for me, you get the job done on time and with the utmost professionalism. You should be proud of all those you employ, from KJ to Ben B. I've been especially pleased over the years with the work of Brian and Alice, both of whom seem to tolerate my idiosycratic compulsion to edit, but I've not found a bad apple in the bunch (and, as you know, I've used your firm a bunch!). I look forward to our continued professional relationship."
