As we enter into the holiday season, it is important to stay diligent to help combat the spread of COVID-19. In this five minute video, President & CEO Terry Lerash discusses the key points in helping our state's health system from being stretched too thin. Across Michigan, Intensive Care Units (ICU) are nearing capacity and larger hospitals are running out of space. We all need to do our part to stop the spread of COVID-19.
Every year, the Huron Daily Tribune turns to its readers to designate people and businesses for their "Readers' Choice Awards." This year, over 64,000 votes were submitted over the course of a month and we are extremely proud and humbled by the honors that we received this year as an organization. We have always taken great pride in providing outstanding healthcare with the utmost care and compassion, but it is entirely rewarding to know that our community appreciates and understands the quality of care that we strive for, every single day.
Type 2 Diabetes (T2D) has become increasingly common in society over the past several decades. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) 34.2 million Americans, (about 1 in 10) have the disease. T2D is a chronic condition in which a patient’s ability to metabolize blood sugar is impaired. If left untreated long-term complications of T2D can include heart attacks, strokes, limb amputation, blindness, kidney failure, and permanent nerve damage. Two of the biggest misconceptions about T2D, are that 1. It is a disease caused by eating too much sugar, and 2. Once you have T2D, you can never eat carbohydrates again.
