Diabetes affects half a million people in the state of Arizona. Many are asking the same question:Does anyone understand what its like to live with diabetes? Taking Control of Your Diabetes (TCOYD) is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization that has been educating and motivating diabetes communities in cities around the country since 1995, and they understand. TCOYD will be hosting their second conference in Tucson with an all-star cast of diabetes experts for a day that will ignite motivation, offer hope and change the life of anyone with diabetes!
Steven Edelman, MD, Endocrinologist and Founder and Director of TCOYD, was diagnosed with diabetes at the age of 15. Edelman was told that blindness, kidney failure and amputations were likely to occur after several years and that his life expectancy wouldnt exceed 20 years. That was not a prediction that he was willing to settle for. Edelman went into medicine to learn how to conquer this condition and help others afflicted with it. At the age of 57 he is living well with diabetes and had dedicated his medical career to educating and empowering others with this disease.

GSK'S MMR vaccine was rejected in Canada but used in the UK. It has been suspected in causing autism. Here's a USA government statement regarding compensation of autism as a vaccine side effect.
"The government has never compensated, nor has it ever been ordered to compensate, any case based on a determination that autism was actually caused by vaccines. We have compensated cases in which children exibited an encephalopathy, or general brain disease. Encephalopathy may be accompanied by a medical progression of an array of symptoms including autistic behaviors, autism or seizures"
But they say there is no connection after linking vaccine, encephalopathy and autism in this statement.
