Some Type 2 diabetes patients are misdiagnosed

There are thousands of people in Ohio and tens of millions of people nationwide that live with diabetes. This disorder that inhibits processing of insulin comes in several forms, some often diagnosed among children and others among adults. Treatments may include supplemental insulin, medications to lower blood sugar, changes to diet and other lifestyle alterations, and those treatments may vary considerably depending on the type of diabetes the person has. While diabetes is quite common, many people may also be misdiagnosed with the wrong type of diabetes. Misdiagnosed patients may receive the wrong type of treatment as a result, leading to ineffective blood sugar control and other negative health conditions.

Advanced biopharma may offer mesothelioma treatment options

Mesothelioma is a form of cancer that affects people in Ohio who have worked with asbestos. In most cases, people are only diagnosed with pleural mesothelioma once the cancer has developed significantly. As a result, they may have few options for effective treatment, although early detection may provide more opportunities. Some people may develop mesothelioma decades after asbestos exposure, usually at work in industries that involved heavy contact with the dangerous fibers. While mesothelioma typically develops in the lining of the lungs, it can also affect the heart, abdomen, testicles, and other parts of the body.

New bill proposes interstate travel for truckers under 21

A hearing held in February 2020 by the Senate Commerce Subcommittee on Transportation and Safety has explored the various concerns over a proposed bill called the DRIVE-Safe Act. This bipartisan bill, introduced in February 2019, proposes that interstate travel be opened even to those commercial truckers under the age of 21. Ohio, like most states, allows drivers as young as 18 to obtain a CDL but restricts them to intrastate travel.
